Leyton Orient will attempt to pick up their first home win of the season when they host Walsall tomorrow.

Russell Slade's side suffered a shock home defeat to Chesterfield on the opening day of the season but have since been unbeaten on the road for the last three matches.

Kevin Lisbie is a major doubt after his shoulder popped out at Bristol City on Tuesday night which forced him off the pitch in the first half.

Summer signing Darius Henderson is likely to come into the side for his first start at home after replacing Lisbie at Ashton Gate. 

Striker Chris Dagnall could also be added to the squad after missing the opening four matches.

Manager Slade said: “He [Dagnall] injured his ankle in pre-season but he’s back in training. It’s light training at the minute so whether he makes Saturday I’m not sure.”

The Saddlers have made a slow start to the season with two points from their first three games in League 1. 

Orient are unbeaten in the last six meetings with Walsall although three of these have ended in draws.
