Leyton Orient take a four-match winning run into their home game with Preston in League One this weekend.

The O's have turned their season around with a brilliant fortnight which has featured three away wins in a row. A 4-1 victory at Carlisle United was followed by a 3-2 win at Portsmouth on Tuesday night.

But Russell Slade could be without his captain after Nathan Clarke picked up a swollen ankle at Pompey.

Slade said: "It [Preston] will be another tough game and a different challenge again but it will be nice to be off the road. Confidence will be good.

“We couldn’t buy a goal and here we are talking about bagging another three on top of a four on top of a two and another two. It’s like Christmas.”

Preston are unbeaten in their last six league games, sitting tenth in the table, but they have drawn four of those.

Orient will be hoping for a repeat of last season when they completed the double over Preston.
