Orient boss Slade looks for that elusive home win in derby clash
Striker Mooney is set for a return
Orient boss Russell Slade is hoping that the TV cameras will help inspire his side to their first home win of the season when they entertain Brentford tonight.
“Both sets of players will want to do well and turn in a performance for television,” said Slade.
“Having played five games away and just one at home, it would be nice to get a win in front of our own fans.”
The O’s boss is likely to name an unchanged starting 11 after Orient picked up their first win of the season at Swindon last weekend.
