Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Leyton Orient and Stevenage take on each other at Brisbane Road on day 35 of the current League Two campaign. Leyton are low on confidence following a heavy 4-0 loss to Exeter, and given Stevenage’ current form, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. Wilkinson is likely to return to the starting XI, with Widdowson dropping to the bench.
The Boro, on the other hand, proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Forest Green (3-0) and Harrogate (1-0) and seeing that Leyton looked pretty shaky at the back in their last league fixture, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. When the two teams met at Broadhall Way in the first half of the season Leyton defeated Stevenage 2-0, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Craig Clay):
After spending his youth career at Chesterfield, Craig Clay continued wearing the Spireites jersey at senior level. The English midfielder made 27 appearances for Chesterfield in the league before signing a deal with York City in the 2013/2014 season.
It has to be noted that he played for the likes of Barrow and Alfreton Town on loan as well before signing the deal with the Minstermen. Born in Nottingham, England on May 5, 1992, Craig Clay was part of Halifax Town, Worksop Town, Grimsby Town, and Motherwell squad as well in the past. Nowadays, the 180-cm tall midfielder plays for Leyton Orient in the League Two, the English fourth tier.
He made his League Two debut with the O’s on August 3, 2019, in a 1-0 win over Cheltenham Town. Craig Clay has one cap with the England C national team as he represented the Three Lions in a 2-0 win over the Ukraine U20 team on March 22, 2016.
Highlighted Team (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
