Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade will name an unchanged starting line-up for the visit of Hartlepool.

Slade felt his side had the better of much of last weekend's trip to Sheffield Wednesday despite falling to a narrow 1-0 defeat.

Goalkeeper Jamie Jones remains the Os' only injury absentee. The former Everton trainee faces another fortnight on the sidelines after aggravating a groin injury against Oldham recently so Lee Butcher keeps his place.

Striker Jonathan Tehoue played for the reserves in midweek to build up his fitness following an ankle injury but will be among the substitutes again.

There will be one change on the bench with on-loan Tottenham winger Paul-Jose Mpoku back from international duty with Belgium's under-19s.

Antony Sweeney looks set to shake off a hamstring problem and take his place in Hartlepool's squad.

The energetic midfielder has missed Pools' last three matches, but may have to settle for a place on the bench due to their impressive form.

James Poole, signed on a one-month loan from Manchester City on Tuesday, could make his debut although he is unlikely to earn a place in the starting XI.

Striker Adam Boyd is doubtful after picking up a back strain in training, while in-form Gary Liddle (hamstring) may miss out.

Last week's 2-0 victory over Peterborough was Mick Wadsworth's side's third successive win in all competitions and they will be hoping to continue their excellent run at Brisbane Road.
