PREVIEW: SALFORD CITY (A)

access_time 4 months ago

LEYTON ORIENT’s 20/21 SEASON WILL CONCLUDE WITH A TRIP TO PLAY SALFORD CITY.

Last time out, Orient were beat 3-2 at the hands of Carlisle United. Goals from Conor Wilkinson and Dan Kemp had Orient ahead at the break, but the Cumbrians scored twice in the second-half.

Hector Kyprianou missed that one with a head injury, however, the Cypriot is likely to return to the match day squad.

The Ammies

Salford come into the game needing all three points to be in with a shot of pinching the final play-off spot. Even with a win, the Ammies need both Forest Green and Exeter to drop points.

In their last match, Gary Bowyer’s team were defeated 1-0 by Colchester United. Both Di’Shon Bernard and Ashley Hunter were sent-off and therefore they’ll be suspended this Saturday.

The Officials

Ref: Darren Drysdale

Assistants: Christopher Ward and Conor Brown

Fourth Official: Antony Coggins

Drysdale last officiated an Orient fixture back in March, when Orient beat Oldham 2-1.

In 25 games this season, the referee has booked 69 players, sent-off two and awarded four spot-kicks.
