This Is Local London: Wolves v Leyton Orient preview Wolves v Leyton Orient preview

Leyton Orient face a huge top of the table clash at Wolves tomorrow in League 1.

League leaders Orient travel to Wolves for the promotion showdown with only goal difference keeping them above their opponents.

The O's managed to stay top of the league on Boxing Day after a dramatic late goal fired them to a 2-1 win at Gillingham.

Orient's small squad is being stretched to the limit with Jamie Jones and David Mooney injured. Shaun Batt is unlikely to be involved due to an injury picked up on Thursday while defender Scott Cuthbert is suspended after picking up five bookings. But the O's can at least recall Lloyd James after he served his one-match ban.

Manager Russell Slade said: "It's going to be a tough, tough game as we know. Whatever XI goes out there, we'll be doing our best and giving our best."

Influential midfielder Romain Vincelot believes the O's win at Gillingham will help send them into the Wolves game full of confidence.

The Frenchman said: "We take it game by game and of course it is going to be exciting because it's going to be a massive game. There will be a lot of fans at a great stadium so we just have to enjoy it.

"I feel like after this win we can go there confident and with no pressure so we can just play a really good game and give 100 per cent. It's going to be a big clash."
