Leyton Orient v Coventry City - Take Four

Leyton Orient v Coventry City - Take Four

For the fourth and final (barring a play-off meeting) Leyton Orient and Coventry City face each other on Tuesday night, the clash offering the O's the chance to consolidate their position in the automatic promotion places while the Sky Blues look to keep in touch with the top six and build on their excellent recent league form.

Having lost to Orient in the League Cup at the beginning of the season and then on penalties in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, City's improvement as a team was clearly shown by their 3-1 win against the same opponents at Sixfields in late October, a first league defeat of the season for the visitors.

A delighted Steven Pressley said after that game: 'We keep getting better and better and, if we carry on doing that, we can be a threat for any side.

'I was concerned for my players as Orient play at an incredible pace and have been extremely impressive this season. But they just go to another level. I asked them for another response and it was an incredible one.'

The Sky Blues will also take heart from their FA Cup trip to Arsenal despite the 4-0 scoreline after imposing themselves on the Premier League leaders for a 30-minute spell after half-time.
