PREVIEW: Gateshead v Leyton Orient

27 April 2018

The O’s are in action tomorrow afternoon (12:30pm kick-off) when they travel to Gateshead for the last fixture in the Vanarama National League this season.

Justin Edinburgh’s men make the trip to Gateshead after a single goal defeat at home against Maidenhead United on Tuesday night.

Gateshead sit in 14th place, one below the O’s and were on the end of a dramatic 2-5 defeat at the hands of Ebbsfleet United on Tuesday night.

Orient have met Gateshead on three occasions this season but are yet to record a win against the Tyneside Club.

The most recent meeting was a 2-3 defeat in the FA Trophy Quarter Final after come-back goals from James Brophy and David Mooney were in vein as Richard Peniket’s goal 11 minutes before full-time sunk the O’s to defeat.

TEAM NEWS

Head Coach Justin Edinburgh is likely to have a similar team to select from for tomorrow's fixture. Captain Charlie Lee played a whole half against Maidenhead and may be in contention to be involved from the start in the last game of the season.
