Leyton Orient will be looking to extend their run of three consecutive wins when they travel to struggling Portsmouth tonight.

The O's will arrive full of confidence after thrashing Carlisle United away 4-1 on Saturday. But Pompey are in real trouble after six defeats in a row.

Orient are at near full strength for the trip with only Scott Cuthbert remaining sidelined. It is likely manager Russell Slade will keep changes to a minimum after such a dominant performance at Brunton Park.

Slade said: "We go again on Tuesday so there's no let up and we've tried to mix and match a little with the squad.

"It's very important because you can't go with the gameplan of the same XI game in game out with all the matches you've got.

"You've got to mix it up a little bit and when players come in they've got to respond and do a job. In the last three games they've done that really well."
