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.
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’.
