Having finally claimed a home league win against Crewe last week, Leyton Orient go back on the road as they travel to Bradford City.
Last week’s emphatic 4-1 win moved the O’s out of the relegation zone and up to 19th in League 1.
Bradford are currently in 12th place with 23 points, 4 more than Orient.
VitalOrient previews the match.
Bradford City Team News:
Centre back Andrew Davies is expected to start despite picking up a knock against Gillingham last week.
Captain Stephen Darby also picked up a knock last weekend but looks set to feature from the start on Saturday.
Bradford will be without Felipe Morais however after picking up a shoulder injury
Francois Zoko could make his debut after joining on loan from Blackpool.
Player to watch: James Hanson
Hanson could be a real handful for the O’s defence on Saturday.
The tall target man will provide a threat in the air and is the Bantams’ top scorer with 5 goals so far this campaign.
With Francois Zoko likely to make his debut, how will Hanson link up with his new strike partner?
Leyton Orient Team News:
Romain Vincelot serves a one-match suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Crewe.
Shane Lowery remains a doubt and could be joined on the sidelines by Italian defender Andrea Dossena.
Strike duo Gianvito Plasmati and Jay Simpson are also doubts for the trip to Bradford.
Player to watch: Chris Dagnall
Dagnall produced his best performance in an O’s shirt last week and arguably one of the best individual showings the Club has seen in recent years.
The striker was involved in all four goals as he scored one and assisted three.
Dagnall has seen his place become increasingly uncertain with Orient having so many strikers at the Club but if he continues his rich vein of form he will surely keep his spot.
