Trading Post: Tak e Us t o slip up ag ainst Os in scr abble for point s; sports lay of the day Oxford (v Leyton Orient) 3pm, Kassam Stadium.

Byline: Matt Williams

THE Us have lost two of their last three at the Kassam Stadium and don't appeal at 1.97 to beat Leyton Orient today.

Ramon Diaz's team were moments from an unexpected win at Scunthorpe on Good Friday, only for Ian Baraclough to rescue a point for the home side.

Defensive errors have been a feature of Oxford's season, with stoppers Jon Ashton and Leo Roget renowned among the Kassam faithful for being particularly culpable.

The visitors are just a point worse off than the home side despite a 3-2 defeat at Cheltenham and are boosted by the return of young striker Efe Echanomi after a three-match ban.

Orient boss Martin Ling has no other injury concerns, while Oxford will give a test to Uruguayan defender Mateo Corbo following illness and a calf injury.
