Walsall v Leyton Orient preview

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: The O's need to respond to their defeat against Brentford: Simon O'Connor The O's need to respond to their defeat against Brentford: Simon O'Connor

Leyton Orient will bid to get their automatic promotion bid back on track this weekend when they visit Walsall.

The O's dropped out of the top two in League 1 last weekend after losing at home to promotion rivals Brentford.

Russell Slade hopes to be able to call on defender Mathieu Baudry with the Frenchman missing the last four games due to a hamstring injury.

Walsall's play-off hopes are fading fast after a poor run of form which has seen them fail to win their last nine matches. The Saddlers have also gone six home games without a victory.

The O's are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Walsall and their win away last season was memorable for Dean Cox's wonder strike from inside his own half.
