Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Brisbane Road will host Saturday’s football match between Leyton Orient and Stockport County. The O’s have already secured automatic League One promotion, but they obviously want to put the icing on the cake on a very successful season. Keep in mind, though, that defender Shadrach Ogie is banned for the league leaders following his sending-off in a 2-1 win over Mansfield Town.
The Hatters, on the other hand, aim to move closer to the automatic promotion berth and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. Will Collar limped off with injury in a 1-0 win over Rochdale, with Connor Lemonheigh-Evans likely to step up, while Patrick Madden should drop to the bench after failing to impress at the weekend. In the first half of the season Leyton Orient defeated Stockport County 2-1 at Edgeley Park.
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 (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.
