Leyton Orient v Hull City Tigers preview
Leyton Orient will attempt to pull off a Capital One Cup scalp this evening when they host Premier League newcomers Hull City Tigers.
The O's have surged to the top of League One after winning their first four games and they also defeated Coventry City in the first round of the competition.
Orient were unlucky to lose to Hull in an FA Cup third round replay in January and supporters will fancy their chances against a much changed visiting team this evening.
Slade said: "It doesn't come any tougher than the opposition we've got. We will have to see who is available and we'll have a good go at it. We enjoy a cup game and we'll look forward to it.
"I would like to rest players if I'm totally honest but at the same time I want to remain competitive so that's the trick here at Leyton Orient."
The O's have doubts over Moses Odubajo after he picked up a leg injury during Saturday's win over Crewe and Shaun Batt is also battling to be fit following a hamstring problem. But on-loan midfielder Marvin Bartley is available to play and could be handed his first start.
