Leyton Orient v Bristol Rovers League One injury news as seven out

The latest team news for both sides as they face each other in east London this weekend.

Bristol Rovers travel to the in-form Leyton Orient on Saturday in the Gas' latest League One clash.

The O's have only lost two out of their last 13 league matches. Meanwhile, Rovers have lost three out of their last five. Matt Taylor will be hoping his side can back up last weekend's win at home to Carlisle United, with another three points. The Pirates will feel that they can cause an upset on Saturday, as Taylor's men have been successful on the road this month, winning at Exeter City and Stevenage.

Richie Wellens' side sit eight in the League One table, just five points off the play-off positions and the Gas sit slap-bang in the middle of the division in 12th, 13 points off the play-offs, as well the relegation zone. Average some may say, however the Pirates will have to be a lot better than that if they are to come away with anything on the weekend.

The last time the two sides met it finished in a 1-1 draw at the Memorial stadium, back in November, as the O's nicked a point in injury time, after an own-goal by Brentford loanee Tristan Crama. Rovers do have fond memories in east London as the Gas beat Orient 2-0 on road two seasons ago, when both sides were battling for promotion in League Two. The Pirates will be hoping for more of the same when they visit Gaughan Group Stadium on Saturday.

Rovers have been missing a plethora of key players in recent weeks, however have been given a double injury boost ahead of Saturday. Meanwhile, a key midfielder is set to return from suspension for Taylor's side. As for the O's, they haven't been affected by absentees in quite the same way as the Gas in recent weeks, however they have had their fair share of injuries throughout the campaign.
