Play-Off Final - Orient vs Rotherham

So this is it. Leyton Orient's season falls on one final match at Wembley Stadium.

Orient's Play-Off semi-final second leg victory against Peterborough at Brisbane Road last Tuesday will live long in the memory of every O's fan and a win on Sunday will make it even sweeter.

Orient manager Russell Slade has no injury concerns going into the tie, allowing him to select the strongest eleven possible.

Their opponents will be Rotherham United, who finished 4th in League One, only behind the O's on goal difference.

Rotherham defeated Preston North End 4-2 on aggregate to book their place in the Play-Off final and Orient will need to be at their best if they are to defeat the Millers, who are aiming for promotion for the second year in a row.

Kevin Lisbie scored the only goal in October when Orient defeated Rotherham at Brisbane Road, but former O`s striker Alex Revell scored in the 95th minute to hand Rotherham a 2-1 win in February.

Who will prevail?

VitalOrient previews Sunday`s Play-Off final.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Russell Slade has no injury concerns ahead Sunday`s final.

The O`s manager will have a tough decision however when deciding who to start between Lloyd James and John Lundstram in the centre of midfield.

Player to watch: David Mooney

Orient will be relying on top goalscorer David Mooney to fire them into the Championship on Sunday.

The Irishman has fired 21 goals this season and despite not having the best of starts at the club when he arrived in 2011, Mooney has proved a lot of his critics wrong this year.

Could he top off an excellent season with the winner at Wembley?

Rotherham United Team News:

Rotherham will be without defender Mark Bradley who suffered a knee injury in March.

Bournemouth loanee Miles Addison has returned to his parent club after picking up a knee injury.

Richard Brindley is pushing for a start after missing their Play-Off victory against Preston with a hamstring problem.

Player to watch: Alex Revell

The former Orient man scored the winner at the New York Stadium in February and O`s fans will be hoping the feat will not be repeated at Wembley.

Orient`s defence will need to keep a close eye on the 30 year-old who has scored 11 goals this season.

Will Revell come back to haunt Orient for a second time this season?

Match Facts & Stats

This will be Orient's first appearance at Wembley in 15 years.

This is the fourth season in a row that the League One Play-Off final has been contested by the teams who have finished 3rd and 4th. The side which finished in 4th on the previous three occasions have gone on to win.

Ref Watch:

David Coote will take charge of the final.
