Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Leyton Orient and Scunthorpe United face each other in a highly-anticipated clash at Brisbane Road. Leyton head into the match following a goalless draw with Stevenage where the Boro failed to turn their dominance into victory. The O’s have been slipping down the standings week by week, and, as things stand now, they will find it hard to book their place in the League Two playoffs.
Leyton are stuck in the middle of the standings, but the game against Scunthorpe could be the turning point for the hosts. The Iron sit in the middle of the standings as well, ten points clear of the relegation zone. Since Scunthorpe United failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Exeter, we predict that they are going to grab only one point from Saturday’s clash. Under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Scunthorpe’s previous five league fixtures.
