Leyton Orient travel to take on Walsall at Banks's Stadium on Tuesday 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 ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The last time the two teams met at Walsall was well over fifteen years ago, back in September 1989, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 3 winners in a Third Division match.
