Leyton Orient face a trip to Northampton Town at Sixfields on Friday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The O's will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 20 and win only 8 of the 36 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in December 2006, with Leyton Orient inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Cobblers in a League One match.
