PREVIEW: Leyton Orient v Bromley

29 December 2017

The O’s welcome Bromley to E10 tomorrow (kick-off 3pm) in the Vanarama National League for the Club's final game of 2017.

Justin Edinburgh’s side made it four wins in as many games with a 2-0 win over Dagenham & Redbridge on Boxing Day. 

 

The O’s took the lead through defender Josh Coulson four minutes after the restart before Macauley Bonne wrapped up the points just before the hour mark when he tucked home at the second attempt.



Bromley arrive in E10 sat in 10th position with 10 wins, eight draws and eight defeats from 26 matches but Neil Smith’s men haven’t won since November 25 and fell to a 2-1 defeat to Ebbsfleet United on Monday.

 

Jack Powell put the home side ahead after 15 minutes before the Ravens top scorer Louis Dennis equalised just four minutes later but Danny Kedwell claimed the points with a 30th minute strike.

 

The O’s fell to a heavy 6-1 defeat to Bromley at Hayes Lane in the reverse fixture in August.


TEAM NEWS

 

The O's will have defender Bondz N’Gala available for selection after his loan deal was extended for a further month on Tuesday.


Defender Dan Happe made his first start since December 9 on Monday and impressed against the Daggers so will be hoping for further involvement.

 

The O's will definitely be without defender Aron Pollock who joined Bostik Premier side Leatherhead on a one-month loan today, one of four to head on loan.

Match Reports

REPORT: Leyton Orient 0-1 Bromley

10-man O's unlucky to suffer Ravens defeat

30 December 2017

10-man Orient suffered a first defeat in five this afternoon as Bromley ran out 1-0 victors at the Matchroom Stadium.

Louis Dennis’ 22nd minute strike proved to be the difference after Orient had seen Bondz N’Gala sent off after four minutes, and the O’s were unable to make the most of their second half attempts despite a spirited display.

The O’s took on Bromley in the final fixture of 2017 after a Boxing Day victory over Dagenham & Redbridge saw the O’s continue their good form to make it four consecutive victories.

Head Coach Justin Edinburgh made just one chance to the XI that started against the Daggers, loanee Bondz N’Gala returned to heart of defence in place of Dan Happe who dropped to the bench.

The O’s kicked off the afternoon towards the South Stand but it was Bromley who were first to register and attempt on goal inside the first two minutes when Adam Mekki stung the hands of Dean Brill from range.

In the fourth minute Orient were reduced to ten men when Bondz N’Gala was sent off as referee David Rock and his assistant judged the defender to have fouled former O George Porter.

Bromley then enjoyed large spells of possession and despite the O’s standing firm in defence, the man advantage soon paid off after 22 minutes when Louis Dennis was played through on goal and finished beyond Brill to give the visitors the lead.

James Dayton was brought down on the edge of the box before his whipped free-kick found the head of Josh Coulson, but the defender’s effort rebounded off the post and was then cleared away from immediate danger.

Dennis fired wide after Porters headed lay off found the Bromley man in space inside the penalty area.

But it was Orient who ended the first half on top and in possession of the ball most. Josh Coulson went close to equalising again when he headed McAnuff’s corner back across goal but Luke Woolfenden was present to clear off the line.

Dayton then smashed an attempt from range inches over David Gregory’s goal which brought the first 45 to an end.

Orient began the second half where they left off, another McAnuff corner found the head of Coulson towards the back post, but this time it was Frankie Sutherland whose goal line clearance denied the O’s a goal.

Dayton found Craig Clay in space at the edge of the box but the midfielder’s striker was blocked by Sutherland before it could trouble Gregory in the Bromley goal.

Dayton and Clay link up from a free-kick but the latter couldn’t connect cleanly enough with the ball at the back post to direct it back into the danger zone.

Smart play between Harrold and Clay gave Alex Lawless the opportunity to place a shot from 20 yards but an excellent save from Gregory denied what would have been a spectacular goal.

The resulting corner saw Dayton swing a ball towards the back post where Clay’s diving header clips the bar before it bounced out for a goal kick.

Macauley Bonne headed over Clays cross from six yards out as the O’s continue to apply pressure on the visitors and search for the leveller.

Bonne was involved again when he held up the ball well before he laid he ball back to Dayton whose volleyed strike just missed the target.

Bromley substitute Brett Williams then had the opportunity to seal the victory for the visitors four minutes from time when a long ball upfield was allowed to bounce, but the forward could only lift his effort over the crossbar.

Despite time running out the O’s continued to push forward in search of an equaliser, and with the match into the second of four additional minutes Clay lashed an effort inches over the bar after Bonne had chested a Matt Harrold cross into his path.

There was to be time for one last chance in the closing seconds however, as a Caprice cross was parried out to Bonne six-yards from goal but the forward was unable to find his balance and hooked the shot over the bar as the O’s ended 2017 in defeat.
