Leeds come up against London opposition again on Tuesday night when they try and get back on track after Saturday`s disappointing defeat at Millwall when they entertain Leyton Orient.
Leeds lost 3-1 on Saturday at Millwall and have now dropped down to fifth in the table.
So far at home this season they have won three games against Crewe, Hereford and Brighton whilst drawing with Bristol Rovers and losing against Oldham Athletic
Leyton Orient lost 1-0 at home against Tranmere Rovers on Saturday; a result that drops`s them into the relegation zone.
So far this season on their travels they have won one at Walsall, drawn one at Brighton and lost at Bristol Rovers, Peterborough and Brighton.
Leeds are still without Alan Sheehan, Paul Telfer fighting for a starting place after injury, after Saturday`s poor performance there could be quite a few changes to the starting eleven.
Ex Leeds defender Danny Granville looks set to miss out with a groin injury.
Sean Thornton who was sent off in this clash last season could make a start after his loan spell at Shrewsbury ended last week; he made a late substitute appearance at the weekend for Orient.
The clubs have only ever met nine times at Elland Road with Leeds Winning five, Orient one and there have been three draws.
When the two clubs last met at Elland Road last season, Leeds dropped their first home points of the season in a 1-1 draw. It was a controversial game with Orient having Sean Thornton sent off early in the game. Late on Orient seem to have a goal ruled out when the ball looked like it had clearly crossed the line but the officials didn`t give it.
