On the back of Saturday's 1-1 draw at London Road, Leyton Orient host Peterborough United in the second leg of the play-off semi-finals on Tuesday.

Moses Odubajo's 73rd minute equaliser cancelled out Britt Assombalonga's first half opener to set up a thrilling match at Brisbane Road.

Orient manager Russell Slade will be hoping his side can be more clinical in front of goal on Tuesday after seeing his team squander several chances at the weekend.

The O's have scored 52 goals at Brisbane Road this season and will go into Tuesday's match in high spirits knowing a win will secure them a place at Wembley in the play-off final.

Peterborough will know they are capable of snatching a win however, after they scored twice in the dying minutes to complete a late smash and grab to win 2-1 at Brisbane Road back in February.

VitalOrient takes a closer look at both sides ahead of Tuesday's second leg.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Lloyd James is pushing for a start after the midfielder impressed when coming off the bench at London Road.

Romain Vincelot and Kevin Lisbie are slight doubts having picked up knocks in Saturday's first leg.

If Lisbie does miss out, Russell Slade will be left with a tough decision over who to start between Shaun Batt and Chris Dagnall.

Player to watch: Moses Odubajo

The Orient winger terrorised Peterborough's defence in the second half on Saturday.

The 20 year-old scored the O's equaliser at London Road and Odubajo will need to produce a similar performance on Tuesday if Orient are to get the win.

Odubajo has scored 11 goals this season and also has nine assists.

Peterborough United Team News:

Peterborough are expected to name an unchanged side for Tuesday's fixture.

Manager Darren Ferguson has confirmed he has a fully fit squad available to choose from.

Player to watch: Bobby Olejnik

The Austrian goalkeeper was Peterborough's man of the match during the first leg.

Olejnik continuously thwarted Orient in the second half, including a brilliant save to deny Dean Cox from making it 2-1 with fifteen minutes left.

The 27 year-old joined the Posh in the summer of 2012 and has made 56 appearances for Peterborough this season.

Match Facts & Stats

An Orient win would end Peterborough's 100% record in play-off football.

If the O's do win, it will be their 17th home victory of the season in all competitions.

The match is the third sell-out at Brisbane Road this season.

Ref Watch:

Mick Russell will referee Tuesday's match.
