Orient Up Next

Leyton Orient are the visitors to the Walkers Stadium tomorrow as Leicester look to keep their advantage at the top of League One.

Orient have been disappointing in League One so far this season, finding themselves in the relegation zone in 21st place.

Leicester could go 5 points clear at the top by 5 o'clock tomorrow, with MK Dons facing Cochester on Monday night.

The two teams clashed earlier in the season at Brisbane Road, with Leicester coming out 3-1 winners on the day with two late goals from Matty Fryatt and Andy King respectively.

Vital Quotes:

Leyton Orient manager Martin Ling: 'Playing on the big stage could bring the best out of our players. On our past record you'd gain some confidence'.

'We won at Forest a couple of years ago when we were in trouble, and even this year at Leeds we put in a good performance'.

'They're flying at the top of the league and it will be a huge test for us'.

Leicester City Team News:

Top-scorer Matty Fryatt still remains a doubt with an injury.

Leicester have managed to secure the services of Mark Davies until the start of February, and the midfielder should start in tomorrow's game.

Player to watch: Aleksander Tunchev

With the big Bulgarian in defence, it's no secret as to why Leicester have the best defensive record in the league.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Sean Thornton will sit out the match through suspension after his red card at Colchester.

Player to watch: Tamika Mkandawire

The centre back joined from Hereford United as their player of the year in the summer, and has been touted as one to watch for the future.

Match Facts & Stats

This will be the first time the two clubs have met at the Walkers Stadium.

In 24 league clashes in Leicester, the Foxes have won 15 of these and drew 3.

Leicester's defensive home record in the league this season is formidabble, conceding just 7 goals in 12 games. Orient on the other hand have found goals hard to come by on the road, scoring only 9 so far.

Leicester 2-0 Leyton Orient
