PREVIEW: Ebbsfleet United v Leyton Orient

10 November 2017

The O’s visit Stonebridge Road tomorrow (kick-off 5.30pm) as we face Ebbsfleet United in the Vanarama National League.

Orient come into the game on the back of a 2-1 defeat to League One Gillingham in the Emirates FA Cup at Priestfield Stadium on Saturday.

Josh Parker opened the scoring in the 20th minute, before Tom Eaves doubled the home side’s advantage with 16 minutes remaining. James Dayton got his first goal for the O’s to pull one back but Steve Davis’ men were unable to complete the comeback.

Ebbsfleet sit in 13th position in the National League, with five wins, 10 draws and three defeats from their 18 matches.

The Fleet also saw themselves knocked out the FA Cup to League One opposition on Saturday, having let a two-goal lead slip against Doncaster Rovers as they went on to lose out 6-2.

Daryl McMahon’s side are newly promoted to the National League, having won the National League South Play-Offs last season.

TEAM NEWS

Head Coach Steve Davis has a welcome selection headache this weekend as several players returned to training this week.

Midfielder Jobi McAnuff and Dan Happe missed the trip to Gillingham last weekend through respective toe and ankle injuries, though both are available once again.

In addition, loanees Mark Ellis and James Brophy are also back in contention having missed out in Saturday’s FA Cup defeat due to being ineligible for the competition.

Alex Lawless returned to the squad on Saturday and impressed after coming off the bench and will be hopeful of featuring against Ebbsfleet, along with Matt Harrold who is eying a first start following a calf injury.

However, the O’s will definitely be without Joe Widdowson and Macauley Bonne for the trip to Ebbsfleet on Saturday. Widdowson serves a one-game suspension after being sent-off for a second yellow card in stoppage time last weekend, whilst Bonne is away on international duty with Zimbabwe in which he made his senior debut in the Warriors slender 1-0 defeat to Lesotho on Wednesday.

REPORT: Ebbsfleet United 2-1 Leyton Orient

O's suffer Fleet defeat

11 November 2017

A late strike from James Dayton proved to be in vain as the O’s lost 2-1 at Ebbsfleet United.

Andy Drury gave the hosts an early lead with a close range on seven minutes, before the Fleet bagged a second four minutes before half time through Danny Kedwell’s header.

A great strike from Dayton two minutes from time gave Orient a lifeline, but they were unable to force an equaliser in stoppage time.

On the back of last weekend’s 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Gillingham, Head Coach Steve Davis made five changes to the starting XI. Dan Happe and Mark Ellis returned in central defence, James Brophy took up the left wing-back position while Alex Lawless and Matt Harrold were also handed starts.

The O’s also welcomed Jobi McAnuff back to the bench following a toe injury, though were without striker Macauley Bonne for the first time this season with the 22-year-old away on international duty with Zimbabwe, and defender Joe Widdowson who served a one-match suspension.

With the match live on BT Sport, both sides impeccably observed a minute’s silence as everyone in attendance paid respect to those who lost their lives in war. We Will Remember Them.

It was the O’s who got the game underway and enjoyed a large amount of possession during the opening minutes, with a James Brophy cross being cleared away at the far post by Ebbsfleet’s Kenny Clark.

Despite this, Ebbsfleet made the most of their first chance to open the scoring after seven minutes when Andy Drury poked home from close range.

The reaction to falling behind was positive from the O’s, as they controlled possession and really should have been level on the 13th minute when Matt Harrold connected with a Jake Caprice cross only to see his effort come back off the post before James Dayton was beaten to the follow-up.

Dayton then saw a shot from the edge of the area blocked by Clark seconds later, and Harrold was once again denied as the 20 minute-mark approached as his header was tipped over the bar by Nathan Ashmore.

Harrold’s header proved to be the final chance for the best part of 15 minutes as neither side managed to create much in the final third, but with four minutes of the half remaining Ebbsfleet doubled their advantage through captain Danny Kedwell as he powered a Myles Weston cross beyond Charlie Grainger.

Luke Coulson looked to add a third a minute later with a speculative effort from distance which was held by Grainger.

Three minutes stoppage time was shown by the fourth official and the O’s almost clawed a goal back when David Mooney latched onto a Grainger ball up field, but his chipped effort was held by Ashmore for the final action of the half.

Following the interval, Orient made one change as Romuald Boco came on in place of Dan Happe in a move that saw a change in formation as the O’s switched to a 4-4-2 diamond.

In a similar fashion to the first the O’s were controlling a lot of the possession, but failing to trouble Ashmore in the hosts goal and with 25 minutes remaining made their second change as Jobi McAnuff replaced Alex Lawless.

Grainger was then called into action for the first time in the second half on the 68th minute as he dived well to his left to push a Weston corner around the post for a corner which was eventually cleared.

Not long after Kedwell released strike partner Coulson with a pass in behind the defence, but despite breaking into the penalty area the forward was denied by Mark Ellis who tracked back brilliantly to slide in cleanly and claim the ball.

With 10 minutes left on the clock Myles Judd replaced Caprice for the O’s final change, before Coulson drilled a shot over the bar for the hosts.

Frustrated by the lack of chances in the Ebbsfleet third, McAnuff then fired a shot from distance which flew over the bar.

The O’s were handed a lifeline on the 88th minute however, as midfielder James Dayton pulled a goal back with a rasping strike from the edge of the box to beat Ashmore and set up a nervy final few minutes.

With three minutes stoppage time shown Orient threw bodies forward in search of an equaliser, and Brophy showed great footwork to beat several players before being wiped out by a sliding challenge. Advantage was played however as the ball ran through to Mooney who could only fire at Ashmore as the hosts held on for the three points.
