Russell Slade has labelled the visit of his former club Yeovil Town tomorrow a “big game” as the O’s seek to halt a run of five straight defeats.

Three games remain for Orient this season and the manager has warned the task of picking up three points when the Glovers arrive will not prove an easy one.

Slade explained: “It is a big game and it is not going to be an easy game.

“Yeovil were beaten quite heavily against Stevenage at home, so Gary Johnson will be looking for a reaction from that as we will be looking for a reaction because we are on a losing streak at the minute.”

Yeovil have themselves suffered defeat in their last two outings and are not yet mathematically assured of their League One status.

David Mooney’s double strike at Huish Park earned the O’s a point when the two sides met in October but the E10 side will be looking for all three tomorrow.

Victory would be invaluable as it would push them to within a point of Johnson’s side, while at worse maintaining the gap back to the relegation places ahead of the final two games of the campaign.
