PREVIEW: Eastleigh v Leyton Orient

16 March 2018

The O’s are on the road tomorrow afternoon (3pm kick-off) when they make the trip to Eastleigh in the Vanarama National League.

Justin Edinburgh’s men travel to Hampshire on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat at home to Torquay United last week Saturday, when a first-half Elliott Romain header saw the O’s sink to defeat.

Eastleigh haven’t been in action for three weeks due to postponement, but drew 0-0 against FC Halifax Town in their last outing on February 24.

The sides last met at the Matchroom Stadium in late August, when Craig Clay salvaged an injury time point for the O’s after Ayo Obileye’s first half stoppage time penalty gave the visitors the lead.

The O’s have struggled for form of late, having gone unbeaten in the month of February, they are yet to record a win in March this season, but hope to put that right in Eastleigh this weekend.

TEAM NEWS

Jobi McAnuff, Myles Judd, Dan Happe and Alex Lawless all trained this week and Justin will have a near enough full squad to choose from this weekend, except for long term absentees James Dayton and Charlie Lee.
