Leyton Orient Vs Brighton & Hove Albion, Sat 6 Feb 2010

Leyton Orient are set to be unchanged when they welcome Brighton to Brisbane Road.

The Os put in a sparkling display as they thumped Bristol Rovers 5-0 on Tuesday night and boss Geraint Williams will not want to tinker with a winning side.

Orient suffered no fresh injuries in midweek so Williams has a full-strength squad to choose from.

Top scorer Scott McGleish overcame a dead leg to start against Rovers and came through 73 minutes unscathed.

French striker Jonathan Tehoue completed the rout with his first goal for the club after replacing McGleish, but he is likely to have to settle for a place on the bench again.

The Os have taken 10 points from the last 12 available to move into the top half of the table.

Alan Navarro is battling to be fit for Brighton.

The midfielder limped off during last weekend's 1-0 defeat by Millwall with a foot injury.

Albion initially feared he may have broken the foot but a precautionary X-ray showed it is just badly bruised.

Navarro has resumed light training and will be assessed prior to kick-off with Dean Cox, who replaced him against the Lions, on standby to start.

Defender Adam El-Abd is back in training five weeks after fracturing a metatarsal but Saturday's trip will probably come too soon.

Centre-half Colin Hawkins remains the only long-term absentee and he is facing at least another three months on the sidelines after undergoing an Achilles operation last week.
