Brighton & HA face a trip to Leyton Orient at Matchroom Stadium at lunchtime on Saturday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Seagulls 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 most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2007, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 4 winners in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides
Leyton Orient have managed to pick up just two wins from their last six home games, losing three, While O's have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.
The away form of Brighton & HA however, is much more impressive, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. Just 6 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 3 have been let in at the wrong end.
Leyton Orient are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 27 points from 15 games. Brighton & HA's total of 24 points from their 15 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League One.
