access_time 1 month ago

LEYTON ORIENT TRAVEL TO FACE HIGH-FLYING CHELTENHAM TOWN, AT THE JONNY-ROCKS STADIUM. KICK-OFF IS scheduled  FOR 3PM.

Last Monday, Orient were held 0-0 at home to Walsall. That draw means the O’s are now unbeaten in their last seven outings.

Conor Wilkinson returned from injury against the Saddlers and O’s Interim Manager, Jobi McAnuff, will be hopeful Dan Happe and Nick Freeman could return this weekend.

 The Robins

Michael Duff’s team sit 2nd in the league table, just two points behind the leaders, Cambridge United.

In recent outings, the Robins have been inconsistent: winning two, losing two and drawing one of their last five.

William Boyle’s goal cancelled out Grimsby’s opener, to salvage a point for Cheltenham, on Monday.
