Leyton Orient vs Swindon Town: Match Preview


This is the second away of three away games in a space of seven days in two different competitions for Swindon Town. On Tuesday night they travel to East London to take on Leyton Orient.

In all honesty it was not the best of performances on Saturday in the wind and the rain in Walsall, but the win was all that mattered. I managed to lose my voice after going to the game on Saturday. Second Saturday in a row where it was absolutely freezing watching a game of football.

Swindon Town for the first time since December 2011 are in the hat for the third round of the FA Cup.

I was impressed with the battling display in this team and the qualities we showed on the pitch on Saturday against a Walsall side which struggled at first and grew into the game. Swindon had to dig deep and had to defend well in the final ten minutes of the game as Matthew Taylor side were chasing an equaliser and even more. Jojo Wollacott save from point blank in the latter stages of the game was unbelievable and won the game for Swindon Town.

That was a massive win especially when the performance was not the greatest, over 2,200 away supporters travelled to Walsall which was an unbelievable support from our fans. It galvanised the team on, and Swindon Town managed to pick up their eighth successive away win and remain unbeaten so far this season away from home. If we can get the home record going, it could turn out to be a magical season in League Two

Predicted Swindon Town line up


Wollacott, Odimayo, Conroy, Critchlow, Kesler-Hayden, Gladwin, Reed, Payne, Iandolo, McKirdy, Simpson.

Leyton Orient are 8th in the League Two standings with twenty-eight points from nineteen games and are just outside of the League Two play off spots by just two points. 7th place in League table is occupied by Simon Weaver Harrogate Town side.

The last six League results for Leyton Orient have been a bit inconsistent, two wins, three draws and one defeat. The sole defeat was the last round of league action before the second round of the FA Cup which was a 1-0 away defeat to Northampton Town. The two wins were the 5-0 win over Hartlepool United, the infamous Alan Young added time game. The second win was a 4-1 home win over Sutton United. The three draws were a 0-0 away draw at Stevenage, 2-2 away at Rochdale and a 1-1 away draw at Scunthorpe United.

Leyton Orient at the weekend, advanced to the third round of the FA Cup with a 4-0 home win over Tranmere Rovers.

Kenny Jackett is the Leyton Orient manager; he took over in East London in May 2021 just two months after he was relieved of his duties at Portsmouth. Jackett has had an excellent start to his reign as Leyton Orient manager, 11 wins, 10 draws and 5 defeats in 26 games in all competitions. Kenny Jacket has changed his formation to a 3-5-2/3-4-1-2 with excellent success, with just one defeat in their last nine league matches.
