PREVIEW: Leyton Orient v Macclesfield Town

20 October 2017

The O’s welcome Macclesfield Town to E10 tomorrow (kick-off 3pm) in the Vanarama National League.

The O’s come into the game on a run of three matches unbeaten, and defeated Dagenham & Redbridge in an Emirates FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round Replay on Tuesday night.

Macauley Bonne gave Orient the lead in the 23rd minute before the O’s remained sturdy under a barrage of late pressure to frustrate the division’s top scorers and register a clean sheet for the second match in a row.

Macclesfield Town arrive at E10 on a high, sitting top of the National League with nine wins, two draws and four defeats.

John Askey’s men defeated Northern Premier League side Stourbridge FC 5-0 on Saturday to earn a Emirates FA Cup First Round tie away to League Two side Forest Green Rovers. Danny Whitehead opened the scoring in the 10th minute before goals by Tyrone Marsh, Elliott Durrell, Koby Arthur and Scott Burgess secured a large win.

The Silkmen finished in 9th position in the Vanarama National League last season.

TEAM NEWS

O’s Head Coach Steve Davis has a selection headache following an impressive team display on Tuesday night.

Loanees Mark Ellis and James Brophy were ineligible for the Emirates FA Cup matches against the Daggers but will be hoping to return to the squad for Saturday’s match, along with midfielder Jobi McAnuff who also missed the previous two games with a groin injury.

Alex Lawless missed out on Tuesday through suspension having collected a fifth caution in the original fixture against Dagenham & Redbridge, but remains a doubt this weekend due to a groin problem.

REPORT: Leyton Orient 0-1 Macclesfield Town

O's suffer Silkmen defeat

21 October 2017

A goal in first half stoppage time condemned the O’s to a 1-0 home defeat against Macclesfield Town.

Despite dominating large parts of the first half, Scott Wilson headed home to send the visitors into the lead at the break, and it proved to be the winner as Orient failed to find a way back following the restart.

Head Coach Steve Davis made one chance to the starting XI that who defeated Dagenham & Redbridge in the FA Cup on Tuesday night.

Mark Ellis replaced Michael Clark in defence, while Jobi McAnuff and Alex Lawless missed out through groin injuries.

Orient got the game underway after a 20-minute delay to kick off due to strong winds damaging advertising on the North Stand, and just inside the opening ten minutes Ellis struck an effort wide of the target to register the first attempt on goal.

A forward ball from Dan Happe released Macauley Bonne through on goal, the striker took a touch before he went down under a challenge from ‘keeper Shawn Jalal on the edge of the box but the referee waved play on.

As a result of the collision with Bonne, Macclesfied ‘keeper Jalal was replaced by Sam Ramsbottom after 19 minutes of play.

Happe’s initial shot from a corner fell at the feet of David Mooney whose attempt to help the ball over the line is blocked at point blank range by Ramsbottom.

Seconds later, Jake Caprice darted down the wing and crossed to the back post where Myles Judd was positioned to head in, but the defender’s effort was gathered by the ‘keeper.

As the half hour mark approached it was all one-way traffic, Judd found space on the left to swing a ball intowards Mooney, the striker then powered a header towards goal but Ramsbottom plucked the ball out of the air.

A rare chance for Macclesfield saw Danny Whitehead try his luck from distance, but Charlie Grainger was equal to it and pushed the shot away from danger.

Seconds later however, the visitors took the lead, a whipped cross into the box saw Scott Wilson in the right place to head home.

Soon after the restart, Mooney couldn’t get a clean connection on the end of Judd’s pass into the box from close range.

Three minutes after the hour mark, James Dayton’s cross was met by the head of Bonne but his header is palmed into the air by Ramsbottom, Mooney then collected the rebound but the ‘keeper again made the save to deny the captain the equaliser.

Dayton fired a volley towards goal from just inside the box but the ball was parried behind for a corner by the high flying Ramsbottom.

As the O’s pushed for a leveller, the visitors broke free on the counter. Wilson raced towards goal with Grainger to beat but the striker fired high over the target.

With Macclesfield sitting deep the O’s continued to search for an equaliser during five minutes stoppage time, but were unable to find a way through as they slipped to defeat in E10.
