Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cambridge United will be aiming to move a little closer to the play-offs berth in the League Two standings when they welcome Leyton Orient at their Abbey Stadium on Matchday 22. The U’s are a real force to be reckoned with at home, with the team eyeing their third consecutive triumph in front of home fans. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be midfielder Paul Lewis, who scored his fifth goal of the season in a 1-1 draw with Cheltenham Town.
Leyton, on the other hand, have been slipping down the standings week by week. The visitors are on a seven-game winless run in the League Two ahead of the trip to Cambridgeshire, and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s football match at Abbey Stadium.
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.
