Leyton Orient can climb back into the top two of League 1 with a win over bottom side Stevenage this evening.

The O's have not won any of their last four games but halted a three-match losing run with an important 1-1 draw at Preston on Saturday.

Russell Slade's side looked a lot stronger defensively at the weekend with Eldin Jakupovic back in goal following his return to the club on loan from Hull City. 

Shaun Batt made a surprise return from his hamstring injury at Deepdale as a substitute and the attacker is likely to be involved again this evening. But full-back Elliot Omozusi is likely to miss out once more due to his calf injury. 

Stevenage have an impressive record at Brisbane Road having never lost there in three visits. But the O's will fancy their chances of getting off the mark against them tonight as they play the first of three consecutive home games. 

The two sides have one win apiece this season in their meetings. Orient won 1-0 away back in August but were then beaten 3-2 by Stevenage in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
