ACADEMY PREVIEW: MK Dons (A)

access_time 8 months ago

This weekend, the Leyton Orient under-18s travel to MK Dons for their next EFL Youth Alliance fixture.

In the side’s most recent outing, it was a disappointing morning for the Orient, as Brian Saah’s side suffered a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Peterborough United.

Following the defeat, Saah spoke to leytonorient.com and said, “It’s a tough one to take, considering we played them on the Tuesday.”

He later added: “The boys today just weren’t good enough. We gave the ball away far too many times in bad areas but, to be fair, they’re a good side and they punished us today.”

Now, the O’s have an opportunity to rectify their back-to-back defeats in Peterborough, as they travel to Milton Keynes on Saturday morning. Saah’s side previously faced MK Dons back in mid-October, where they fell to a 3-1 defeat.

As of late, it’s been a difficult few weeks for the Dons, as they’ve failed to pick up a single victory in their last five attempts, which included four straight defeats. However, their last fixture saw a 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon.
