PREVIEW: Fleetwood v Leyton Orient

access_time 7 years ago

ORIENT travel to Fleetwood for the first meeting between to the two clubs and will be hoping to put an end to an excellent unbeaten start to the new season from the League 1 new boys.

Town are unbeaten so far in the League and have only conceded one goal in that time and sit top of the table with 10 points from their four games.
Orient meanwhile will take confidence from their giant-killing of Aston Villa in the week and are unbeaten themselves since the first day of the season, though will be hoping to turn draws into wins and climb the table as the opening month comes to an end.
The Cod Army won promotion from League Two last season as their meteoric rise from the depths of the non league pyramid continues. In terms of team news, their manager Graham Alexander confirmed that Keith Southern is back running on the grass though the midfielder is yet to feature for them this season. Whilst Jamille Matt remains a long term absentee.
Russell Slade could find himself with a few selection headaches especially at the back where Gary Woods, shielded by a rotated back four, kept an impressive clean sheet at Villa Park on Wednesday.
Jobi McAnuff missed the Villa tie with a thigh strain as did Shaun Batt who has been absent with a calf problem since the second game of the season, whilst Kevin Lisbie is a longer term absentee after he dislocated his shoulder at Bristol City.
