PREVIEW: Scunthorpe v Orient

19 September 2014

O's looking to turn away draws into wins at Glanford Park

FORM: Still yet to taste defeat on the road this season, Leyton Orient go to Glanford Park on the back of a 1-1 draw at Notts County. The O’s dominated for large periods against the Magpies on Tuesday night but failed to grab a winner and will be hoping to make the most of their chances against Scunthorpe this weekend. 

Scunthorpe are currently 21st in League One following a slow start to the season. Russ Wilcox’s side do come into Saturday’s match on the back of a 2-1 win against Coventry City however, which moved them onto the same amount of points as Orient.

TEAM NEWS: Lloyd James (thigh) has returned to full training and Gary Sawyer (tendonitis) is also making good progress, which could see the pair included in the O’s matchday squad this weekend. 

Gary Woods is set to continue in goal for the O’s as Adam Legzdins recovers from a finger injury and Russell Slade will also have to decide who to partner in defence following Shane Lowry’s impressive performance against Notts County.

Lyle Taylor is expected to continue his partnership with Paddy Madden in attack after scoring the Iron’s winner against Coventry on Tuesday night. Eddie Nolan and Neil Bishop are likely to be named on the bench after recovering from thigh and foot injuries respectively.

BETTING: Orient sponsors 666Bet have made the O’s favourites for Saturday’s clash, pricing them at 6/5.
