access_time 1 month ago

Leyton Orient travel to face Exeter City on the back of a much needed victory, against Grimsby town, on Tuesday night.

Jobi McAnuff was appointed Interim Manager last Sunday and the former O’s Captain got his managerial career off to a perfect start at Blundell Park. Dan Happe scored from the bench in the 20th minute and helped the team keep a clean sheet – Orient’s 12th of the season.

The Grecians

Matt Taylor’s side come into the game in mixed form, having won two, drawn two and lost one in their previous five matches. With 47 points on the board, Exeter sit five points ahead of Orient in 9th place.
