LEYTON ORIENT TRAVEL TO THE UTILIA ENERGY STADIUM TO FACE BRADFORD CITY ON TUESDAY NIGHT. THE MATCH IS scheduled TO KICK-OFF AT 7PM.

The O’s will be looking to record a first win in six matches and end Bradford’s four game unbeaten run at home.

Last time out, Dan Kemp netted his first goal for Orient, to rescue a point against Port Vale. David Worrall had opened the scoring for the Valiants, just a few minutes into the second-half.

THE BANTAMS

Bradford appointed Mark Trueman & Conor Sellars permanent joint managers of the club on Monday morning. The pair have led their team to 24 points in 11 matches, losing just once since taking temporary charge.

Andy Cook’s brace at the weekend earned an impressive win against Cheltenham, at The Jonny-Rocks Stadium.
