PREVIEW: Wycombe Wanderers v Leyton Orient

access_time 5 years ago

Andy Edwards takes the O’s to in-form Wycombe Wanderers tomorrow hoping to build on last weekend’s 1-0 home win over Accrington Stanley.

Jay Simpson scored the only goal of the game in the second half to seal a vital three points for the O’s and find themselves in 21st place ahead of tomorrow’s game

Wycombe on the other hand hold sixth spot in the League Two table and go into the match as one of the form sides having won their last seven games under Gareth Ainsworth.

Last time out they picked up a 2-0 win at Notts County with Adebayo Akinfenwa putting them ahead, before the hosts saw Michael O’Connor sent off.

Former O Scott Kashket made it 10 goals in 11 games with the second before Akinfenwa was also shown his marching orders in the second half, and will subsequently miss tomorrow’s game.

At home, the Chairboys have lost just two of nine games and they came against Colchester United (2-0) and Barnet (2-0)

Defender Teddy Mezague is pushing for a start having made his debut as a second half substitute in the victory against Accrington last Saturday. The Frenchman came on for the final 10 minutes at the Matchroom Stadium after fully recovering from a torn Achilles which has kept him out since signing for the O’s at the end of August.

Striker Ollie Palmer is a doubt with a dead leg, while loanee Harry Cornick continues his recovery from injury at parent club AFC Bournemouth. Meanwhile, vice-captain Liam Kelly still a number of weeks away following surgery on a torn hamstring.

BETTING (correct at the time of writing)

Wycombe are favourites against the O’s at Adams Park tomorrow and can be backed at even money (1/1). Orient are 14/5 to come away with all three points, while the draw is 23/10.

Jay Simpson scored the opener in this fixture last season and is 6/1 to do so again, while Wycombe’s Paul Hayes and Scott Kashket lead the market for the Chairboys at 9/2 and 5/1 respectively.

A repeat of the 2-0 win at Adams Park last season for the O’s can be backed at 18/1.
