Tranmere Rovers face a trip to Leyton Orient at Matchroom Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers 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 just last season, in November 2009, the O's carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League One match.
