Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade has welcomed the selection dilemmas he will face this weekend after their shock win at Aston Villa.

The O's dumped Villa out of the Capital One Cup despite making six changes and players such as Shane Lowry and Gary Woods enhanced their claims for a spot in the side at Fleetwood Town tomorrow.

Slade said: "It's the kind of dilemma you want as a manager because you're choosing from 18 or 19 that probably deserve a place in the side for one reason or another. That's a great feeling for a manager and it's not a problem for me."

Fleetwood are the early pacesetters in League 1 after an unbeaten start following their promotion last season.

It will be the first meeting between the sides and Orient will be looking to extend their unbeaten run since losing on the opening day to Chesterfield. 

Nathan Clarke, Jobi McAnuff and Darius Henderson were all left out of the midweek win at Villa and the trio are likely to come back into the side, while keeper Adam Legzdins is likely to return in goal having played all of the league games this season.
