Ross Embleton is expecting a "daunting" test for his Leyton Orient side when they travel to Bradford City this weekend.

The Bantams have won just two of their last seven games but remain firmly in the play-off picture in League Two, sitting ninth and only four points behind Northampton Town who are seventh.

Despite their patchy form of late, the fans have still been turning out in their numbers in Yorkshire, with Bradford having the highest average attendance in the division at over 14,000, and that is going to be one of the hardest things for the O's to combat.

Embleton said: "It's a daunting place to go, I'm a place that as a player you thrive on going and playing in front of crowds like that and when it gets going there it's a great place to play your football.

"We'll certainly be going there looking to make it a little bit quieter."

Bradford are one of countless teams to have suffered with the state of their pitch over this winter given the stormy weather and, at times, seemingly relentless rain.

The boss feels that his side are going to have to adapt their game quite a bit to be able to deal with the surface at Valley Parade.

He said: "It's very, very difficult for anybody at the moment. For groundstaff, it's tough. Ours is a difficult surface to play on and I think you'll have seen today a few of the boys breaking away and the ball bobbles up around their feet. It's going to be a different game of football away to Bradford."

Orient go into the game having lost just once in their last five but without an away win in over a month.
