In what will be our last fixture before the two-week Christmas break, the Leyton Orient under-18s will travel to Stevenage for their next EFL Youth Alliance fixture.
In our most recent outing, Brian Saah’s side recorded an emphatic 4-2 victory over MK Dons, with four different Orient men managing to find the back of the net.
Although Saah expressed his delight for the victory following the game, the under-18s manager highlighted some key areas where he wishes to improve ahead of our trip to Stevenage.
“We can still be better defensively,” Saah said post-match. “We’ll continue to work on that but we’ll also continue to exploit the good players that we have upfront. So, overall, there is a lot to still work on but we’re ready to kick on in the next game.”
The O’s previously took on Stevenage on the 31st October and suffered a heart-breaking 5-2. With this loss fresh in the memory, both Saah and the squad will look to right the wrongs from their previous meeting.
