Form: The Saddlers have enjoyed a strong start to the season and currently lie just outside the play-off places in eighth. Dean Smith’s side visit E10 in good form on the back of three positive results having secured very impressive away victories at Crewe and Wolves before grabbing a point against high-flying Rotherham last weekend.
Injuries: After naming an unchanged side for the past seven games Russell Slade could be forced into a number of changes for this weekend’s tie. Scott Cuthbert (hip) is likely to sit out whilst Jayden Stockley is also unlikely to play a part after a knock in training. Mathieu Baudry still has a problem with his gashed eye which has become infected and Shaun Batt has been suffering with a virus and is also a doubt.
One To Watch: After losing last season’s top-scorer Will Grigg to Brentford over the summer, forward Craig Westcarr has been tasked with the job of firing the goals for the Saddlers this campaign. The former Notts County man has started the season in good form and grabbed a double against Crewe two weeks ago.
The Bookies: Unsurprisingly, Football League sponsors Sky Bet have made the O’s 4/5 favourites to continue their fantastic winning start to the season. Walsall are priced at 7/2 to become the first team to beat Orient this season with the draw priced at 5/2. For a full list of Orient specials from Sky Bet click here
