access_time 4 months ago

The O’s travel to the Cardiff City Stadium this Saturday to take on Newport County. Kick-off is scheduled for 1pm.

Orient have drawn their last two fixtures against Stevenage and Scunthorpe but will be looking to return to winning ways this weekend.

Tristan Abrahams will be unavailable to feature, as Newport are his parent club. James Brophy will serve the first match of a two game suspension after picking up another booking against Scunthorpe.

The Exiles

Newport’s winning streak came to an end on Tuesday night when Port Vale beat them 2-1 at Vale Park. Prior to the defeat Michael Flynn’s men recorded wins against Morecambe, Bradford and Colchester.

The Exiles currently sit 5th in the league standings, four point adrift of the automatic promotion places.
