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.
