Orient Braced For Bee's Encounter - Brentford (H)

As the Sky camera's begin to get set up around Brisbane Road, Leyton Orient prepare for their sell-out clash against fellow promotion chasers Brentford.

Orient are now unbeaten in six following Tuesday's 2-0 win at Port Vale, and three points on Saturday will move the O's four points clear of their London rivals.

Brentford come in to the match having only tasted defeat once in their last 23 league matches, and Bee's manager Mark Warbuton will hoping his side can put a sting in Orient's automatic promotion hopes.

Leyton Orient can complete the double over Brentford with a win on Saturday, after goals from David Mooney and Shaun Batt handed the O's all three points when the two sides met at Griffin Park back in September.

VitalOrient takes a closer look at the top of the table clash.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Leyton Orient will be hoping to welcome back French defender Mathieu Baudry, who has missed the previous three matches with a hamstring injury.

Fellow Frenchman Romain Vincelot is a doubt with a foot injury after the midfielder was substituted after only 20 minutes at Port Vale on Tuesday.

Kevin Lisbie could return to the starting line-up to partner David Mooney in attack.

Player to watch: Eldin Jakupovic

The on-loan Hull goalkeeper has become a cult hero around E10 over recent weeks.

His imposing presence has brought added confidence to the Orient team with his communication and distribution skills, which has contributed to the goalkeeper registering seven clean sheets in ten matches for the O's.

Jakupovic has impressed with a string of confident performances since returning to Orient in February and another solid performance from the Bosnian will be pivotal if the O's are to emerge as victors on Saturday.

Brentford Team News:

Brentford will be without defender Harlee Dean, who has been sidelined with a groin injury since the start of March.

The Bee's will also be without midfielder Sam Saunders who is expected to miss the rest of the season having had an operation on his knee.

Player to watch: Adam Forshaw

The 22 year-old is a vital part of the visitors midfield and has been influential throughout the Bee's promotion push.

Forshaw's high level of performances have not gone unnoticed as the midfielder was this week short-listed for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Year award.

The former Everton man is capable of scoring from range and has seven goals to his name this season.
