PREVIEW: Yeovil Town v Leyton Orient

10 February 2017

Information on the O's trip to Huish Park tomorrow

The O’s are on the road as Danny Webb looks to record his first win as manager at Yeovil Town tomorrow.

Following last weekend’s 2-1 home loss to Carlisle United, Webb saw Orient lose 1-0 at home to Morecambe in midweek.

Two solid performances have gone unrewarded so far, with Paul Mullin’s second half strike proving to be the only goal that separated the sides.

Orient come into the game in 23rd spot in League Two, while Yeovil find themselves in 15th spot with 36 points from their 29 games to date.

The Glovers drew 1-1 with Hartlepool United in their last encounter as Matt Dolan’s 69th minutes saw Darren Way’s side pick up a point having gone behind to Padraig Amond’s 64th minute strike.

At home they have picked up 24 points, winning seven and drawing three, while defeats have come against Morecambe (1-0), Blackpool (3-0), Hartlepool United (2-1), Barnet (1-0) and Doncaster (3-0).
