PREVIEW: Leyton Orient v Wrexham AFC

20 April 2018

The O’s are back at home in E10 tomorrow afternoon (3pm kick-off) when they welcome Wrexham to the Matchroom Stadium in the Vanarama National League for the penultimate time this season.

Justin Edinburgh’s men host Wrexham on the back of a 1-0 defeat in Hartlepool on Tuesday evening, when Louis Laing’s header secured the Pools’ National League place.

Visitors Wrexham sit in 8th place and were defeated at Dagenham & Redbridge last weekend when Paul Rutherford’s 23rdminute opener was cancelled out by Fejiri Okenabirhie and a David Raven own goal.

The two sides last met back in October 2017 when Macauley Bonne and Mark Ellis rescued a point for the O’s at the Racecourse Ground.

Orient’s five game unbeaten run was halted at Hartlepool on Tuesday night but Edinburgh will hope his team can get back to winning ways this weekend.

TEAM NEWS

The O's are still waiting to learn the fitness of George Elokobi and James Brophy, both of who were replaced through injury during Saturday's defeat.

Long term abesntees James Dayton, Dan Holman, Matt Harrold and Josh Coulson remain sidelined.

A draw is priced as long as 3.15 so a bet of €20 (£17.50) to win could see you win back a possible €63.00 (£55.13) and as Wrexham are the national leagues draw specialists that looks an exciting wager.

Over 3 goals in the match is deliciously priced at 2.95 particularly as Wrexham will be looking to attack from the off so a bet of €15 (£13.13) could see you rake in €44.25 (£38.72).
