Walsall v Leyton Orient preview
Leyton Orient will be keen to bounce back at Walsall this evening after their disappointing defeat to Doncaster Rovers at the weekend.
The O's four-game unbeaten run came to a limp end at Brisbane Road but manager Russell Slade could be boosted by the return of Martin Rowlands. The midfielder missed the defeat with a hamstring injury but may be available tonight.
Orient will have midfielder Anthony Griffith available again after serving his one-game suspension and he is expected to return to the starting lineup.
But striker Kevin Lisbie is a doubt for the trip to the Midlands after picking up a slight shoulder injury.
Slade said: "They're [Walsall] doing well and got a good result on Saturday [at Bournemouth] so it is a tough game. But they're all tough aren't they?
"We hope so [Rowlands available]. He's mightily close and of course we've got Griffith back so it does help."
Walsall manager Dean Smith will be a familiar name to Orient fans after spending six years as a player at the club. The Saddlers are in decent form having won four of their last five League One games.
This evening's game is the first of eight during a hectic October and the O's will be looking to extend their unbeaten run away from home to three games after strong showings at Swindon and Crewe.
