Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Port Vale will be looking to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Stevenage when they welcome Leyton Orient at their Vale Park on Matchday 15. The Valiants suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their previous four league fixtures, and they must be low on confidence ahead of Saturday’s game. Leyton, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team recording back-to-back wins over Harrogate and Bradford City.
The visitors aim to retain their spot in top seven, and they should take advantage of the current atmosphere in the home team’s dressing room. In their last meeting in the League Two Port Vale defeated Leyton Orient thanks to David Amoo’s goal, meaning that Ross Embleton’s men are hungry for revenge. Danny Johnson, who scored a hat-trick against Harrogate, is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (David Amoo):
David Amoo is a professional football player who was born in Southwark, London, England on April 13, 1991. Amoo spent his youth career at the likes of Millwall and Liverpool, but nowadays he plays for League Two side Port Vale.
