Orient look to break their away-day duck

A poor return on the road puts pressure on the O’s at home

ORIENT boss Russell Slade will be hoping his side can break their away-day duck at Colchester tonight.

The O’s have not won on their travels in the league since last January and Slade admitted: “We need an away win because we are putting pressure on ourselves.

“Our home form is really respectable and we’re difficult to beat at Brisbane Road.

“But it’s frustrating that we can’t win away. We came close in our last game at Swindon and we need to get a bit closer.”

O’s face a stiff test at third-in-the table Colchester United and the O’s boss may opt to play with just one up front.

With Scott McGleish and Paul-Jose Mpoku unlikely to be fit, Slade is likely to go with the same starting 11 that beat Rochdale on Saturday, but include midfielder Adam Chambers instead of Ryan Jarvis.
