O's Back On The Road - Notts County (A)

Notts County
vs.
Leyton Orient

Meadow Lane

Saturday 8th March 2014

15:00

Having played their previous three matches at home, Leyton Orient are back on the road as they travel to basement club Notts County on Saturday.

The O's go in the match on the back of three wins and will be looking to add another three points as the search for automatic promotion goes on.

Orient are joint top of League 1 but have played two matches more than both Wolves and Brentford so cannot afford to drop any points against County.

Notts County will be looking to put the disappointment of last weeks 6-0 hammering to Rotherham behind them as they attempt to move off of the bottom of the table.

Managed by Shaun Derry, the Magpies have lost their last three matches and find themselves five points from safety with 12 matches left to play.

Orient ran out 5-1 winners when the two sides met back in September and will be hoping to leave Meadow Lane with three more points come Saturday.

VitalOrient previews what is sure to be a tense encounter.

Notts County Team News:

Dean Leacock and Mustapha Dumbuya look set to return from injury this weekend.

However, the match may come too soon for Gary Liddle, who has been injured since December.

Nathan Tyson is expected to make his debut after joining on loan from Blackpool earlier on in the week.

Player to watch: Jack Grealish

The 18 year-old winger has been a bright spark throughout a tough season for County this season.

The youngster is on a season long loan from Aston Villa and has scored five goals and assisted three in 27 appearances.

Grealish is a real threat when running with the ball and impressed when playing for the Republic of Ireland U21's during the week.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Nathan Clarke (knee) and Shaun Batt (back) are both slight doubts for the O's.

Mathieu Baudry remains on the sidelines with a hamstring injury whilst David Mooney will also miss the match with a rib injury.

Player to watch: Elliott Omozuzi

With Mathieu Baudry out injured and Nathan Clarke a doubt, Russell Slade may be forced to play Elliott Omozuzi at back on Saturday.

Omozuzi has been one of the O's most consistent players this season and will have to produce yet another fine performance as Orient look to maintain their promotion push.

Even if Omozuzi is not needed to cover in the centre of defence, it is likely he will be up against the highly rated Jack Grealish, which is sure to be an exciting duel.
