Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Following thrilling back-to-back wins over Cambridge United and Portsmouth, Leyton Orient will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Bolton in the League One round 29. With no fresh injury worries to report, Richie Wellens is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Pompey 3-0 at the weekend.
The Trotters, on the other hand, aim to recover from the heart-breaking FA Cup loss to Luton Town. Even though Bolton have been producing fine showings in the League One of late, the share of spoils is on the cards as Leyton have found their best form. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Dion Charles, who has been Bolton’s key source of goals this term. In their last meeting at the venue Leyton Orient rolled over Bolton 4-0.
Highlighted Team (Leyton Orient):
Leyton Orient are the League Two side that welcome their rivals at Brisbane Road. The stadium, which was built and opened in 1937, can hold up to 9,271 people. When playing at Brisbane Road, the O’s wear red shirts and red shorts, while the colour of their away kit is blue.
Southend United are regarded as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the A13 derby. Leyton Orient have the rivalries with the likes of West Ham United, Millwall, Brentford, Dag & Red, and Barnet as well. The O’s registered their biggest win on November 12, 1955 as they crushed Crystal Palace 8-0.
