Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Scunthorpe United and Leyton Orient face each other at Sands Venue Stadium in what is expected to be a close match. The Iron produced their best performance of the season on Tuesday evening, with the team rolling over Scunthorpe 5-2 on the road, and, no doubt, the hosts are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Leyton. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Abobaker Eisa, who scored a brace in the midweek clash.
Leyton Orient, on the other hand, aim to extend their winning run in League Two to four games. Seeing that both sides looked impressive in front of goal in their last league fixtures, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. It has to be noted that over 2.5 goals have been netted in seven of Leyton’s previous eight games in all competitions.
