PREVIEW: Boreham Wood v Leyton Orient

8 September 2017

The O’s make the short journey to Meadow Park tomorrow as we face Boreham Wood (kick-off 3pm) in the Vanarama National League.

Orient will be looking to extend a four-match unbeaten run which has seen the Club rise to second in the table, and last Saturday saw Steve Davis’ side defeat Guiseley 4-1 at the Matchroom Stadium.

Having fallen behind to Kayode Odejayi’s 36th minute opener, Macauley Bonne ensured the O’s went into the break ahead with two penalties.

Recent signing Matt Harrold then headed home moments after coming on in the 65th minute, before turning provider eight minutes from time when he played Bonne through to complete his hat-trick.

Boreham Wood sit 10th in the table, following three wins, two draws and three defeats.

The Wood, who finished last season in 11th place, come into tomorrow’s game having lost their last two matches however, being narrowly defeated 1-0 by Wrexham on Bank Holiday Monday before suffering a 2-1 loss against Barrow on Saturday.

TEAM NEWS

Striker Matt Harrold will be pushing for his first O’s start having notched on his debut appearance after coming off the bench against Guiseley.

Midfielder Alex Lawless is available once again after missing out last Saturday due to a hip flexor injury, and the 32-year-old will be looking to regain his place in the starting line-up at Meadow Park.

First Team Captain Charlie Lee is the O’s only long-term absentee after suffering a knee injury in training in August.
