Leyton Orient will be aiming to halt their slide down the League One table tomorrow when they host Coventry City.

The O's have lost four of their last five league games and have only found the net once during that period. Back-to-back defeats against Oldham and Colchester City have increased the pressure ahead of this weekend's game.

Orient boss Russell Slade said: "We've jist got to keep our heads up, work hard and get over it. There are just one or two things not quite going our way right now.

"It doesn't come any tougher. They've [Coventry] had a couple of really difficult seasons and now they find themselves in League One. That's a big football club to be playing at this level and it will be a tough game."

The Sky Blues sacked Andy Thorn earlier this season and replaced him with Mark Robins. Coventry are currently fourth bottom in the table and five points behind this weekend's opponents.

It will be the first meeting between the sides since 1973 and history is in Coventry's favours as they have not lost to the O's in the last seven matches.
