Leyton Orient V Pool

Pool make the long trip to the capital to face Leyton Orient in League One.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Orient are without defender John Mackie who has a foot injury, forward Echanomi is out with a knock on a knee and Micheal Simpson also has a knee injury.

They do have defender Gary Alexander back after a suspension and Adam Tann could return after surgery after being diagnosed with testicular cancer.

Orient currently are one place above the relegation zone and have gone for five games without a win.

Player to watch: James Walker

The young striker is on loan from Charlton and has bagged 3 goals this season, one of those goals came in his loan spell with Bristol Rovers. He`s made eight appearances for the Orient.

Blackpool Team News:

Grayson might be able to call upon Wes Hoolahan who`s been out with back and calf problems.

Ian Evatt is back from a one-match suspension which means Kaspars Gorkss may move over to left back to allow Evatt to resume his partnership alongside Michael Jackson.

Player to watch: Andy Morrell

The ever willing Morrell broke the deadlock last week and will look to continue his scoring form in the match on Saturday. He`s bagged 11 goals so far this season with three coming in the last two matches.
