Leyton Orient will be looking to extend their winning run in 2014 this weekend when they face League 1 play-off contenders Rotherham.

Russell Slade's side are second in the table after four consecutive league victories but will be tested tomorrow when they visit fifth-placed Rotherham.

The O's are searching for a new goalkeeper after Eldin Jakupovic was recalled from his loan by Hull City.

But Orient are in a strong position in all other areas with striker David Mooney pushing for a start after scoring on his return from injury against Coventry City on Tuesday.

Manager Slade said: "It will be tough. They're [Rotherham] very physical, direct and in your face and work exceptionally hard."

Orient edged to a 1-0 home win over Steve Evans' side back in October but Rotherham are in good form with three wins from their last four games.
