Leyton Orient manager Geraint Williams is hoping his in-form side are meeting Leeds at exactly the right time this weekend.
The Os are unbeaten in five games and will host a Leeds team suffering their first wobble of the season - they have won just once in nine attempts since knocking Manchester United out of the FA Cup.
The Yorkshiremen also had to endure a gruelling penalty shoot-out defeat by Carlisle in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night while Orient have not played since Saturday's draw with Brighton.
"The players will be rested, without that midweek exertion, so we can prepare and put on a better performance and come off with three points," said Williams.
"It goes hand in hand that when results go well, confidence is boosted and players don't want to miss games with niggles and knocks. We've got players who have got those but they are desperate to get out there."
