Leyton Orient face a difficult trip to early League 1 leaders Bristol City this evening. 

The O's got off the mark on Saturday after battling back to claim a 3-1 victory at Oldham Athletic.

But the Robins are one of the sides setting the pace after victories in their opening two league games.

Russell Slade is unlikely to make many changes from the team which won last weekend but midfielder Lloyd James, who picked up a knock at Plymouth last week, could earn a start after being an unused substitute on Saturday. 

Kevin Lisbie could also come in for consideration after the former Charlton Athletic striker came off the bench to head in his first goal of the season at Oldham. 

Bristol City are fancied by many to challenge for promotion after Steve Cotterill helped mastermind a strong end to last season.

The O's have struggled recently against them having failed to beat City in their last five matches dating back to 2001.
