Leyton Orient will be aiming to get back to winning ways on Tuesday evening as they are set to host Lincoln city at Brisbane road in a game which kicks off at 19:45.
After a mixed start to their campaign, Orient currently find themselves in 13th place in the League One table, having amassed 20 points from their 16 outings so far this campaign.
The O’s come into this weekend’s game on the back of a poor run of form which has seen them go without a win in their last four league outings. This run has included draws against the likes of Barnsley, Northampton and Burton.
In their last league outing, Orient were narrowly defeated by Oxford in a highly entertaining game. Ruben Rodrigues opened the scoring for Oxford in the 33rd minute, before Billy Bodin doubled their lead just before half-time.
Fin Stevens' own goal in the 51st minute gave Orient a glimmer of hope, but Ruben Rodrigues restored Oxford's two-goal advantage just moments later. Shaq Forde's header in the 64th minute set up a tense finale, but Oxford held on to claim all three points as the game ended 3-2.
Richie Wellens’ side have had a ten day break coming into this game as their fixture against Port Vale was postponed due to international call-ups within the squads. It remains uncertain whether this will result in the O’s being rejuvenated and well-prepared for this game, or if they will show signs of rustiness.
Lincoln currently find themselves in 10th place in the League One table, after they have gained 23 points from their 17 league outings so far this season.
Lincoln City were in action on Saturday afternoon as they are set to travel to Stevenage. Jamie Reid was the goalscoring hero again as his poacher's finish gave Stevenage a 1-0 victory over Lincoln which lifted them up to fourth in League One. It also ensured a losing start for new Imps head coach Michael Skubala, whose side lacked a cutting edge that was provided to the Boro by Reid's 14th goal of the season.
