Last Time Out
Chris Brayford’s side come into this fixture well rested following the postponement of Sunday’s F.A Cup tie with Cheltenham.
Orient’s last game came away at QPR just over a fortnight ago. Despite falling behind to Millie Cutler’s 7th minute opener, the O’s secured their place in the F.A Cup first round proper thanks to goals from Ellie Stenning and Otesha Charles.
The margin of victory could have been even greater had it not been for the heroics of Lucie White in the R’s goal, but Orient did well to navigate a nervy final ten minutes and set up this Sunday’s game with Cheltenham.
Kent Football United have endured a torrid start to the season and currently sit rock bottom of the National League Division One South East, having lost all eight of their league games played.
Their only victory so far this season saw them defeat Meridian Ladies 7-0 away from home in the County Cup, but since then they’ve lost seven matches in a row in league and cup.
They fell to a narrow 4-3 defeat at home to AFC Basildon last Sunday with goals coming from Lydia Willis and Emma Squirrell. Amy Russ is their top scorer this season with six goals and she’ll be one for the O’s defence to watch out for on Wednesday night.
Speaking ahead of Orient’s return to league action, vice-captain Sophie Le Marchand was keen to emphasise the positive effects the break has had on her side:
Coming to the Game?
The match takes place this Wednesday 13th November at Glentworth Sports Club, DA1 1JB, with kick off scheduled for 8pm.
