Leyton Orient vs. Coventry City

So They Meet Again - Coventry (H)

For the fourth time this season, Leyton Orient prepare to face Coventry City, who currently sit 11th place in League One.

Despite winning the first two meetings between the sides in both the Capital One Cup and the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, Orient will be looking for revenge after Coventry became the first side to beat the O's in the league back in November.

Having had no fixture over the weekend, Orient dropped down to second place after Brentford won at home to Gillingham, which gives the O's an added incentive to get the three points against Steven Pressley's Coventry side on Tuesday night.

Chris Dagnall is set to make his full debut after his two goals at Crewe.

Orient's new boy looks set to start after his impressive introduction away at Crewe last time out.

The forward showed what he is capable of with two smartly taken finishes and will also add another dimension to the Orient attack.

Player to watch: Franck Moussa

The 24 year-old Belgian will need to marked closely if Orient are to keep the Coventry attack at bay.

Having built a reputation for scoring great goals, Orient cannot afford to leave the midfielder in space.

Moussa already has twelve goals to his name this campaign as well as six assists.
