Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Leyton Orient will be aiming to recover from a 1-0 loss to Fleetwood when they welcome Lincoln to their Brisbane Road on Tuesday evening. The O’s have been having their ups and downs in the League One of late, but they are surely capable of matching the Imps in front of home fans. Midfielder Ethan Galbraith is banned for the match following his sending-off in the defeat to Fleetwood.
The Imps, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Cheltenham, but given their difficulties on the road, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. It has to be noted, though, that the two sides shared the spoils in each of their last three meetings in the English third tier. In their last home game in the League One Leyton Orient defeated Shrewsbury thanks to Ruel Sotiriou’s goal.
Highlighted Player (Teddy Bishop):
Having joined Ipswich as an eight-year-old, Teddy Bishop rose through the ranks at Portman Road to become one of the key players for the Tractor Boys. Bishop’s road to prominence hit a serious roadblock in his first year of the academy scholarship when he endured a serious back injury, but it was in 2014 that he went from strength to strength – proving his worth at the club and emerging as one of the most promising players in the squad.
The total of 36 appearances in his debut season with the first team were more than enough to make an impression on the fans and the club hierarchy which offered him a new long-term deal.
This deep-lying midfielder in characterized by impressive passing accuracy, vision and great reading of the play. Bishop is an asset defensively as well, but he is most comfortable sitting just above the back line, spraying balls around. As a two-footed midfielder, Teddy Bishop is regularly being watched by a number of Premier League biggest clubs.
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.
Speaking of the club’s heaviest defeat, Leyton Orient were beaten by Aston Villa 8-0 in the FA Cup round 4 on January 30, 1929. Leyton Orient have four London Challenge Cup trophies (1912, 1972, 1973, and 1993), with the team clinching the Dubonnet Cup title in 1911.
