PREVIEW: Orient v Walsall

22 August 2014

All the info from team news to parking at the Matchroom Stadium


FORM: Orient extended their unbeaten run to three matches on Tuesday night when they held Bristol City to a 0-0 draw. The O’s are undefeated against Walsall in their previous six meetings, winning three and drawing three. 

The Saddlers are without a win from their first three league fixtures following draws with both Port Vale and Bradford respectively before suffering a 2-1 defeat at home to Yeovil Town on Tuesday night.

TEAM NEWS: Kevin Lisbie will miss out after he came off with a shoulder injury at Ashton Gate and both Shaun Batt and Chris Dagnall have missed the past couple of matches. Orient manager Russell Slade revealed however that Dagnall is back in training.

Injuries continue to deplete the Walsall squad ahead of their trip to E10, with over six players ruled out but Dean Smith could be boosted by the return of defender James O’Connor.
