PREVIEW: Leyton Orient v Barrow AFC

access_time 3 years ago

Justin Edinburgh’s men host Barrow on the back of a 1-3 win in Guiseley on Good Friday, before Easter Monday’s fixture against Maidenhead was called off following a late pitch inspection.

Visitors Barrow make the trip to East London after hosting AFC Fylde in a 1-3 defeat on Tuesday night, after the initial Easter Monday fixture was called off due to bad weather.

The two sides last met back in October 07, 2017. David Mooney and Craig Clay’s first half goals were matched by Bedsenté Gomis and Jordan White to see the game end level at 2-2.

Orient have been in good form of late after recording their first home win of 2018, the side went on to make it back to back victories with the win over Guiseley last week Friday.


Matt Harrold is set for a spell on the side-line after the forward injured his hamstring in the victory over Woking, while James Dayton remains a long-term absentee. Charlie Lee returned to full-training last week but Saturday’s game may come too soon for the central midfielder.

Otherwise, Justin Edinburgh should have a nearly full-strength squad to select from, with David Mooney pushing for a start following his goal-scoring appearance off the bench on Good Friday.
