The O’s will be hoping to make it three games unbeaten when hosting Notts County at the Matchroom Stadium tomorrow.
Following on from the 1-1 weekend draw at Yeovil Town, the O’s produced a great performance to pick up a 3-2 win at Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday.
Antoni Sarcevic put the Pilgrims ahead before Gavin Massey’s fine solo goal levelled matters at the break.
Derek Adams’ side went ahead once more through Matty Kennedy but Massey was on hand to smash home a second equaliser with two minutes remaining.
The game didn’t end there though as Sandro Semedo netted his second league goal of the season to secure a vital victory for Danny Webb’s side.
Notts County come into the game two places and a point above the O’s after a 2-2 draw against Exeter City on Tuesday.
The Magpies trailed to David Wheeler’s first half strike, before the Grecians saw Jordan Moore-Taylor dismissed for a second bookable offence. Ryan Harley extended the lead, but Notts County struck twice in stoppage time through Richard Duffy and Jorge Grant.
County, managed by former O’s player-manager Kevin Nolan, have won five of their 14 away games with victories coming at Hartlepool United (2-1), Crawley Town (3-1), Cheltenham Town (3-2), Exeter City (2-0) and Portsmouth (2-1) – all of which came before the end of October.
