On Sky

Easter Part 2 - Wolves (H)

With automatic promotion now out of the question, Leyton Orient get set to face already promoted Wolves on Easter Monday in front of a sell-out crowd live on Sky.

The O's were defeated 2-1 by Crawley Town on Easter Friday to end their chances of catching Brentford in second place and confirm their involvement in the upcoming Play-Offs.

Lloyd James and Chris Dagnall replaced John Lundstram and Kevin Lisbie at the Checkatrade.com stadium and Russell Slade now has to decide whether to rest key players ahead of the Play-Offs or to try and build momentum.

Wolves are currently six points clear of Brentford at the top of the league and will arrive at Brisbane Road in the hope of securing the League One title.

Kenny Jackett's men were involved in a thrilling match on Good Friday against Rotherham in which Wolves scored twice in added time to win 6-4.

Leyton Orient have only won once in their previous seven matches but managed a 1-1 draw against Wolves when the two sides met at the Molineux Stadium back in December and will be hoping to delay the visitors title celebrations with a win on Monday.

VitalOrient previews the match which is sure to be a brilliant encounter live on Sky.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Orient will be hoping to welcome back Kevin Lisbie after the striker missed the Crawley match with a groin injury.

Marvin Bartley remains on the sidelines with a hamstring injury as the only other injury concern.

Player to watch: Nathan Clarke

The Orient skipper will need to be at his best when facing the free scoring Wolves attack on Monday.

Clarke has been ever present in League One this season and has been one of the O's most reliable performers with his gutsy performances in defence.

However, Leon Clarke and Nouha Dicko will be a tough pair to handle and Orient cannot afford to make any mistakes with those two lurking.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News:

Bakary Sako is a doubt with a hamstring injury. The winger was substituted in their 6-4 against Rotherham.

Wolves could also be without James Henry who was taken off at half-time in the win.

Lee Evans could come into the starting line-up as one of their replacements.

Player to watch: Nouha Dicko

The 21 year-old striker is in red hot form and comes into the match having scored a hat-trick against Rotherham last time out.

Despite only having signed for Wolves in January, Dicko has scored 11 times and is the clubs second top goalscorer.

Dicko is currently enjoying his second spell at Wolves having joined the club on loan last season.

Match Facts & Stats

Wolves will become the champions of League One if they win. A draw will also be enough if Brentford lose their match.

Monday's fixture will be their first meeting at Brisbane Road since 1987, a match in which Orient won 3-1.

This will also be the 50th meeting between the two sides.

Orient have won 17 out of the 49 matches and lost 22.

Ref Watch:

Neil Swarbrick will take charge of the match.
