Vale At Home - Port Vale (H)
14th September 2013
After the extended break Leyton Orient reignite their league campaign with a home match against mid-table Port Vale.
The O`s are looking to stretch their new record start to six wins from six as they face Micky Adams`s promoted Valiants.
VitalOrient previews ahead of what looks to be a fascinating contest come tomorrow.
Leyton Orient Team News:
Russell Slade should have no new injury concerns meaning that the Orient manager will have a full squad to pick from.
The only player absent is De`Reece Vanderhyde who was sent out on loan to Skrill South Concord Rangers.
Player to watch: Scott Cuthbert
The Scotsman has begun the season in the unfamiliar role of right back and has performed admirably against some of the league`s trickiest wingers.
He could face potential wing threats from the likes of Jefferson Myrie-Williams and Kaid Mohamed tomorrow and the former Celtic man will have to keep them at bay to stop Vale from having a successful day.
Port Vale Team News:
Dan Jones is still the only absentee for the Valiants as he makes his recovery from a groin strain suffered against Wolves last month.
Other than Jones`s injury Vale boss Micky Adams should have a full squad to select from with him likely to keep the starting 11 which has won the last two games consecutively.
Player to watch: Anthony Griffith
Griffith is well known in these parts after his brief one season spell at the O`s.
The tough-tackling midfielder joined Orient in May 2012 but struggled to make an impact during his 28 appearances before he was loaned and then permanently transferred back to Vale.
The Montserrat man will want to show what the O`s are missing when he features at Brisbane Road tomorrow.
