PREVIEW: AFC Fylde v Leyton Orient

16 February 2018

The O’s make the trip Mill Farm to take on AFC Fylde tomorrow afternoon (kick-off 3pm) in the Vanarama National League.

Justin Edinburgh’s side make the trip on the back of a 1-1 draw with Tranmere Rovers where a Scott Davies own goal levelled the scores after Ritchie Sutton’s header got the opener for the visitors.

AFC Fylde have been in good form of late, having only lost one game since the turn of the year, which came in an away trip to Woking on January 27.

Last time out The Coasters defeated Gateshead 1-2 thanks to two first half goals from Danny Rowe.

In the reverse fixture, AFC Fylde ran out 1-2 victors when Rowe struck either side of the break before a Jobi McAnuff effort pulled one back late on for the O’s but saw Fylde cling on to their lead.

TEAM NEWS

Midfielder Jobi McAnuff remains a doubt after he sustained a neck injury during training last week while defender Myles Judd remains a doubt due to a groin injury sustained in training.
