Leyton Orient V Walsall at Matchroom Stadium : Match Preview

Leyton Orient V Walsall - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Lisbie missing for Orient

Leyton Orient will be without veteran striker Kevin Lisbie when they host Walsall in the FA Cup.


Lisbie, who has scored 12 goals this season, missed the 1-1 draw with Sheffield United last weekend after picking up an ankle injury in training and will not be fit in time.


Shaun Batt will therefore continue in attack for the League One leaders.


Boss Russell Slade could decide to give back-up goalkeeper Jake Larkins and fellow youngsters Yohann Lasimant and Johnny Gorman run-outs after they played in the first-round win over Southport.


Walsall continue to boast a fully-fit squad.


The Saddlers have enjoyed an empty treatment room for several weeks and boss Dean Smith will be hoping that remains the case as the club head into the hectic festive period.


Midfielder Nicky Featherstone could well be recalled at Brisbane Road while the likes of Ashley Hemmings and Troy Hewitt will also be hoping for a look-in.


Walsall have already claimed a 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient in League One in late September having played over 70 minutes with 10 men following the sending-off of skipper Andy Butler.
