Leyton Orient play their first home game of 2014 tomorrow when they host Carlisle United.

The O's have faced a busy schedule on the road with four consecutive away matches since Boxing Day.

But seven points from their last three games have taken Russell Slade's side back into the automatic promotion places in League 1.

Four players are in line for home debuts with goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic, Jamar Loza, Shaquile Coulthirst and Jamie Ness all joining recently on loan.

Orient are expecting Marvin Bartley to be fit after he came off with cramp on Tuesday night in the win at Shrewsbury Town.

But Romain Vincelot and David Mooney are still at least a week away from returning to fitness. 

Orient will be hoping to continue their recent trend against Carlisle with two 4-1 wins and a 5-1 victory in their last three meetings.
