Sheffield United v Leyton Orient preview

This Is Local London: Leyton Orient have not beaten Sheffield United in the last seven meetings: Simon O'Connor Leyton Orient have not beaten Sheffield United in the last seven meetings: Simon O'Connor

Leyton Orient could have midfielder Romain Vincelot available this weekend for their trip to Sheffield United.

Vincelot returns from his two-match suspension but is a doubt due to a foot injury. Everton youngster John Lundstram made his debut against Bradford after joining on a one-month loan but he could make way for the experienced Frenchman at Bramall Lane tomorrow.

Goalkeeper Jamie Jones will make his first away appearance since December after making a successful return from a hairline fracture of his back against the Bantams.

Slade said: “He produced a couple of good saves that will do him the world of good. I thought his kicking was excellent all afternoon. That’s pleasing from a team point of view.”

Sheffield United have climbed into the top half of the table after an excellent run of form in the last couple of months under Nigel Clough. But the team might have one eye on their match after Orient when they face Hull in their FA Cup semi-final. 

The O's have not beaten Sheffield United in their last seven meetings and in their most recent match it finished 1-1 at Brisbane Road back in November.
