Leyton Orient welcome high-flying Bournemouth to Brisbane Road on Saturday.

Kevin Nugent told leytonorient.com:

‘But we’ll certainly go into this one in a positive frame of mind. We’ve been scoring goals, and I think we’ve had that threat all season.

‘Bournemouth will have loads and loads of energy. They’re a really good side, who have good goalscorers and good players throughout the team.’

Leyton Orient Team News:

Leyton Orient could start with on-loan goalkeeper Jason Brown who joined the club on Friday.

But Slade will still be without captain Stephen Dawson due to a leg injury picked up in the last league clash at Bristol Rovers.

Player to watch: Matthew Spring

Spring was one of many O’s players to have an impressive outing in Bristol last week. His superb passing ability will be key to unlock the Bournemouth defence and let the likes of Revell through on goal.

AFC Bournemouth Team News:

Bournemouth travel to London with no new injury concerns. Striker Michael Symes could feature for The Cherries after injury.

Player to watch: Josh McQuoid

McQuoid has been in outstanding form so far this season, netting two hat-tricks in the last two games. Stopping him will be one of the main priorities for the O’s tomorrow.

Match Facts & Stats

Bournemouth are going well in npower League 1, sitting 3rd in the table and seven points above the O’s in 17th.

The visitors won their last game comfortably against Walsall but have only picked up one victory away from home so far this season.

The O’s also won their last league game 3-0 and have also not lost at Brisbane Road in the league since the middle of September.

Match Prediction:

If the O’s defence can hold strong against a lively Bournemouth attack, then the recent goal threat and good form of our own frontline could prove the difference and seal a 2-1 victory for Orient.
