Orient make the short trip to Essex tomorrow to face in-form Colchester United. The U`s like their opponents are unbeaten in their first four league games in a match that will certainly test both teams.
VitalOrient looks ahead to tomorrow`s local clash.
Colchester United Team News:
Colchester boss Joe Dunne should have a full squad to choose from with former Orient loanee Ryan Dickson now fit after recovering from a virus.
Youngster Tosin Olufemi who deputise for Dickson in last week`s draw against Carlisle could keep his place.
Player to watch: Gavin Massey
Massey is one of Colchester`s exciting young attacking talents.
Since arriving at the club last year, the winger/forward has been one of the U`s stars and is highly rated by current boss Joe Dunne.
With a league goal already to his name this season, Orient will have to be on guard to stop the threat of the former Watford youngster.
Leyton Orient Team News:
Orient are set to welcome Mathieu Baudry back to the starting line-up after he was an unused substitute in the O`s League Cup defeat against Hull on Tuesday.
Shaun Batt should make the bench as he continues his recovery from injury.
Player to watch: Kevin Lisbie
One of several ex-Colchester players who will be in Orient colours tomorrow, the talismanic striker will be looking for a better result than last season`s agonising 2-1 defeat at Weston Home Community Stadium.
Despite scoring in the match, Super Kev missed a late crucial penalty denying the O`s a share of the spoils in April. Lisbie will hope to put that disappointment right come tomorrow afternoon.
