Orient boss Slade may switch things around for Walsall trip
O’s look to stretch unbeaten league run to 12 games
ORIENT will be looking to stretch their unbeaten league run to 12 games when they travel to relegation-haunted Walsall tonight.
Former O’s star Dean Smith was recently appointed manager of the Saddlers and has steered them out of the bottom four.
Orient defender Andrew Whing, who scored during Saturday’s 2-0 win against Notts County, admits it will be difficult as Russell Slade’s side look for points to try and gatecrash the play-offs.
“It will be tough as they are fighting for their lives,” said Whing.
“We’re on a great run at the minute and we’re looking up to the play-offs, especially given the form were in and with the run we’re on.
“We’re playing really well and the mood cannot be higher, but Walsall is a hard place to go on a Tuesday night.”

Boss Slade admitted he might shuffle things around following Saturday’s 2-0 win.
“It’s another big game for us, but the squad will come into play and there might be changes again to try and keep the side as fresh,” said The O’s boss.
“That policy has served us well and I don’t see any point in changing it.”
