Preview: O's v Posh Play-Off Semi Final Second Leg

12 May 2014

Two injury concerns for O's boss Russell Slade...

It will be winner-takes-all at the Matchroom Stadium on Tuesday evening as Orient entertain Peterborough in the League 1 Play-Off Semi-Final second leg with the aggregate score locked at 1-1. 

The bookies make Orient favourites to make it through after the away draw at London Road but O’s manager Russell Slade believes his side still have a lot of work to do if they are to progress to the final.

“We still have an awful lot of work to do and we know that. We got a result and it’s level but there’s still so much to play for,” said Slade after the first leg.

“It’s set to be a full house and a great atmosphere and we will do everything we can to keep our journey going.”

Meanwhile Posh boss Darren Ferguson is hoping for a repeat of the result that saw them win  2-1 in E10 back in February thanks to two late goals after David Mooney had put the O’s in front. 
 
"We won at the Matchroom Stadium earlier in the season and played well that day and we can take heart from that performance. We tend to do well in one-off games and this is a one-off game," Ferguson said. 

Slade had a fully fit squad to choose from on Saturday but has slight concerns over Romain Vincelot and Kevin Lisbie who picked up knocks on Saturday.

Meanwhile Ferguson has everyone available and has hinted that any changes will be minimal from Saturday’s line-up.
