Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cheltenham Town will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Carlisle United when they welcome Leyton Orient at their Jonny-Rocks Stadium. The Robins quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Scunthorpe United, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure a top-seven finish. January signing Reuben Reid, who opened his goal-scoring account against Carlisle, will be one of the men to keep an eye on in the home team.
Ross Embleton’s troops, on the other hand, did well to beat Mansfield Town 2-1 in their last league fixture. Leyton Orient moved away from the danger zone, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season. Anyhow, seeing that the Robins are eager to climb to the play-offs berth, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Gloucestershire.
