Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Leyton Orient and Swindon Town go head to head at Brisbane Road in a highly-anticipated League Two game. Leyton aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Northampton, with the team eyeing a spot in top seven. Since the O’s impressed in a 4-0 FA Cup win over Tranmere at the weekend, home win should definitely be considered. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Harry Smith, who scored a brace in the crushing of the Super Whites.
The Robins, on the other hand, have been in a fine form in the League Two of late. Following three consecutive league wins, Swindon Town shared the spoils with Harrogate in their last league match. Leyton and Swindon seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
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 (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
