Justin Edinburgh’s men continued their fine start to the season with a well-earned three points over high-flyers AFC Fylde on November 3.
The O’s took the lead within the opening minutes as Macauley Bonne smashed home before Danny Rowe pulled a goal back for the hosts. However, Josh Koroma was on hand to regain the lead just before half-time with a wonderful strike from the edge of the box before the 20-year-old struck again just after the break to wrap up the win.
Neil Smith’s side have made a reasonable start to the season, sitting in 14th position with six wins, five draws and eight defeats from the opening 19 games.
The Ravens performed well last week in the FA Cup in a 1-3 defeat to League One high-flyers Peterborough United as Frankie Raymond’s red-card at 1-0 proving to be the turning point.
Last season’s FA Trophy finalists were in clinical form against Hartlepool United in their last league game, thrashing the County Durham-side 4-0 at Hayes Lane, Frankie Sutherland, Omar Bugiel and George Porter with the goals.
Assistant Coach Ross Embleton confirmed to leytonorient.com that he hopes Charlie Lee and Sam Ling will return to training in a week, but both will definitely be absent for tomorrow’s fixture.
Otherwise, Justin Edinburgh will have a fit squad to choose from as the likes of Matt Harrold, Dan Happe, George Elokobi and Alex Lawless completed minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly with Bristol City during the week.
