Unable to make the most of their second half opportunities at Crewe on the weekend, Leyton Orient remain outside the relegation zone with five games left to play.

The O’s host Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday looking to extend their four match unbeaten run.

Doncaster have endured a recent dip in form only claiming two wins in their previous eight matches and are currently 13th in League 1.

VitalOrient previews the clash.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Dean Cox is a major doubt for the O’s with a groin injury.

Jay Simpson and Gary Woods are also doubts having missed the trip to Crewe on the weekend.

Marvin Bartley played the full 90 at Crewe on the weekend but may be replaced by Lloyd James for the visit of Rovers.

Player to watch: Alex Cisak

The on loan goalkeeper has been a fantastic signing since arriving from Burnley.

Cisak produced a number of sublime stops during the O’s most recent home game against Gillingham to keep Fabio Liverani’s side in the game.

The stopper will need to produce another impressive display if Orient are to claim the points on Tuesday.

Doncaster Rovers Team News:

Doncaster manager Paul Dickov has no fresh injury concerns ahead of their trip to Brisbane Road.

Donny will be without Paul Keegan and Luke McCullough as the pair continue to be ruled out with knee injuries.

Player to watch: Curtis Main

The forward is Rovers top scorer this season with 10 goals.

Following his move from Middlesborough in the summer Main has made 39 appearances this campaign.

Main will be one of Donny’s main threats and will need to be kept quiet.

Match Facts & Stats

The previous three matches have ended with a 2-0 score line.

The O’s last registered a home victory against Doncaster in 1997 when they won 8-0.

Orient have won 14 of the 30 meetings between the teams.
