David Mooney remains a doubt for Leyton Orient's trip to Port Vale this evening in League 1.

The O's are hoping to have their top scorer available after a rib injury forced him to miss Saturday's draw at Notts County. 

Defender Mathieu Baudry is unlikely to make tonight's game due to a hamstring injury and is targeting the crucial game with Brentford this weekend.

Orient have put together a five-match unbeaten run but will be determined to go into Saturday's sold out clash above Brentford in the table.

The O's have a desperate record at Port Vale where they have only won once and have lost on their last six trips. 

Speaking after the 0-0 draw on Saturday, defender Scott Cuthbert said: "I've never [Port Vale] played there myself but I've heard the pitch is big and it's the not greatest either so it will be another tough game.

"We've just got to go in with the same mentality as today and stay strong at the back and hopefully we can get the goals this time."
