Capital One Cup: Leyton Orient v Hull match preview

A look ahead to tonight’s Capital One Cup second round fixture at Brisbane Road

League One leaders Leyton Orient will look to upset Premier League new boys Hull as the O’s hope to continue their league form following a 2-0 win over Crewe at the weekend.

After an opening day defeat to Chelsea, Hull’s stirring defensive performance against Norwich on Saturday earned them a first Premier League victory since their promotion. Yannick Sagbo’s red card means he will sit out the match which could see goalkeeper Steve Harper make his debut.
