After the perfect opening week, the O`s travel to Broadhall Way to take on Graham Westley`s Stevenage who will look to put an end to the visitors excellent start.

Westley now in his third spell as manager of the Hertfordshire based club, will be desperate to gets his first win against Orient on home soil.VitalOrient previews the action ahead of tomorrow`s clash.

Vital Preview

Stevenage Team News:

Peter Hartley and new loan signing Michael Doughty could be in line to make their debuts for Stevenage after signing from Hartlepool and QPR respectively.

Steve Arnold is expected to continue in goal while Ex-O Ben Chorley is still not ready to return.

Player to watch: Darius Charles

The versatile Charles was a part of Westley`s second spell as manager of Stevenage where he was converted from a defender to a bulldozing striker, helping the Boro into League 1.

With the number 9 on his back, Charles has already played in a number of positions for his team in the three games so far. A strong, athletic player, Orient will have to be on their guard to prevent one of Stevenage`s key men.

Leyton Orient Team News:

The O`s appear to have no major injury concerns, with all of the squad available for selection.

Manager Russell Slade is likely to stick with the same team that won 3-0 against Shrewsbury meaning Marvin Bartley and Yohann Lasimant will have to wait for their starting debuts.

Player to watch: Elliot Omozusi

Omozusi filled in admirably at left back against Shrewsbury last Saturday, dealing with the dangerous threat of Paul Parry in a excellent fashion.

With the boss in the transfer market for a left back, the former Fulham man will hope to convince Slade that he is worth a prolonged spell in the team.
