The Irishman coolly slotted home his eighth goal of the season from the penalty spot on Monday night and will be looking to further add to his excellent tally come Saturday.

It is not just the goals that have been impressive from Mooney. His general touch and build-up play have improved from last season allowing himself and the team to be more dangerous from attacking positions.

Orient`s number ten will have to keep his form going if the O`s are to be successful tomorrow.

Craig Westcarr and Romaine Sawyers could return to the starting XI after being named on the bench for their 1-1 draw against Rotherham.

Player to watch: Adam Chambers
