Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a morale-boosting win over Bradford City, Colchester United will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Leyton on Matchday 5. The U’s did well to put an end to their three-game winless run on Tuesday, with defender Tom Eastman scoring the winner late in the stoppage time. Colchester United produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and they are surely capable of matching Leyton in front of home supporters.
Experienced forward John Akinde is pushing for a rare start. The O’s, on the other hand, have a chance to overtake Salford in top position. Leyton are more of a team than Colchester, and given their rock-solid defence, we believe that gamblers from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Frank Nouble):
Born in Lewisham, London on September 24, 1991, Frank Nouble is a product of the Chelsea football academy. Despite spending his youth career at the capital club, he did not see any game action with the Blues at senior level. Frank Nouble started his senior career at West Ham United, but he made no more than 13 league appearances for the Hammers.
Nowadays, he plays for Colchester United in the League Two. Frank Nouble, who has eight caps with the England U19 team, made his debut with the U’s on August 4, 2018, in a goalless draw with Notts County. He scored his first goal with Colchester United on September 15, 2018, in a 3-0 victory over Cambridge United.
Nouble’s primary position is centre-forward, but he is used as both left and right winger as well. The 190-cm-tall footballer wears the number 45 jersey at Colchester United, and his preferred foot is right.
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.
