Leyton Orient Manager Martin Ling says he faces their toughest home test so far on Saturday when Swansea visit Brisbane Road.

Following Saturday’s game, Orient then travel to Leeds United and Ling says he expects the two sides along with Forest to all finish in the top 6 this season.

He told the East London Advisor:

‘Make no mistake, I’m sure that both Swansea and Leeds will be top six sides.

‘Throw Nottingham Forest into the equation and those clubs are the three big spenders in this league. Before the season started I would have put money on them all finishing in the top six.

‘So our games against Swansea and Leeds will show us just what we have got to do to stay in the shake-up.’



He also mentioned that their home form is a problem:

‘Our home form is a problem, if we are to stay up with the leaders. Seven points from 12 is hardly scintillating and, realistically, Saturday’s game with Swansea will be our toughest to date at Brisbane Road.’



Swansea fans also haven’t been impressed with our form at home and like Orient, we’ve also taken 7 points out of 12 on our own soil.
