Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Boundary Park will host Saturday’s football game between Oldham Athletic and Leyton Orient, the two teams who are almost level on points in the League Two standings. Oldham aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Newport County, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence against Leyton. You should know that the Latics managed to keep three clean sheets in their last four league fixtures.
Ross Embleton’s troops, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the league, with the caretaker manager still eyeing first win at helm. Considering that the visitors are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Greater Manchester, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash. In their last meeting in the League Two Leyton Orient outclassed Oldham Athletic 3-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
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.
