Our prediction for this League 2 match:
There will be fireworks when Leyton Orient and Forest Green go head to head at Brisbane Road on Matchday 26. Leyton have been impressive on home soil of late, with the team beating Southend, Salford, and Morecambe, and they are eager to extend their brilliant winning run. Lee Angol opened his goalscoring account at the weekend, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Forest Green, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Tranmere.
The Green Army are on a four-match winless run in the English fourth tier, but despite their poor form, they are still seen as one of the main favourites to secure promotion to the League One. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Leyton have turned their Brisbane Road into a real fortress. Both Wagstaff and Whitehouse are pushing for a start for the visitors as the duo found the net in the 3-2 loss to Tranmere.
