access_time 8 months ago

Leyton Orient welcome Keith Curle’s Latics to the Breyer Group Stadium, this Saturday. Kick-off is scheduled for 3pm.

Orient will be eager to transfer recent away form to their own patch, as they look for a first win at home under Interim Manager, Jobi McAnuff.

Conor Wilkinson has been in fine form of late, scoring the winner for Orient against Newport and Carlisle. The O’s will be boosted by the return of James Brophy, who has now served a two-match suspension.

 Latics

Keith Curle has managed his new team five times, losing just once, 4-2 to Cambridge United.

Last time out, Oldham edged Exeter 2-1 at Boundary Park, extending their unbeaten run to three matches.
