PREVIEW: Grimsby Town v Leyton Orient

access_time 5 years ago

Leyton Orient will be hoping to make it back-to-back victories when they make the trip to Grimsby Town tomorrow.

Orient go into the game on the back of a 3-0 home win over Stevenage, which came courtesy of two goals from Gavin Massey and one for Dean Cox.

Last time out, Grimsby suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Colchester United. The Marines did mount a comeback though, having trailed 3-0 at the break thanks to a double from Brennan Dickenson and one for Kurtis Guthrie.

Half-time substitute Craig Disley pulled one back three minutes into the second period, and they netted a further consolation effort in the third minute of stoppage time through Omar Bogle.

Grimsby, who were promoted back into the Football League at the end of last season, currently find themselves in 16th place.


Midfielder Nigel Atangana is a major doubt for the O’s after coming off with an injury in Tuesday night’s victory over Stevenage.

Skipper Robbie Weir dropped to the bench in midweek, but could return if Atangana misses out.

Meanwhile, manager Andy Hessenthaler has no other fresh injury concerns going into this weekend’s fixture as a number of players look to force their way into the O’s starting XI.
