Leyton Orient currently find themselves tenth in Sky Bet League Two after winning four games, drawing seven and losing two. Their last league win was on the 18th of September in a 3-1 victory away to Bristol Rovers. Orient’s First Team Manager, Kenny Jackett, has plenty of experience in the EFL, previously being in charge at clubs such as Wolves, Portsmouth, Swansea and Millwall. The experienced Manager will be looking to make a positive impact in his first season at Leyton Orient with a possible push for promotion.
Founded in 1881, Orient were elected into the Football League in 1905 and lasted 112 years before their relegation to the National League in 2017. Two years later, the ever so popular manager Justin Edinburgh led them back into the Football League before sadly passing away just over a month later. In January 2020, Leyton Orient decided to rename the main stand at Brisbane Road ‘The Justin Edinburgh Stand’ to commemorate him.
Boro have met Orient seventeen times competitively, with the East London Side coming out on top nine times. Stevenage have won four of these contests with the two sides drawing the remaining four. In the first ever competitive clash between the two clubs, Boro, who were playing non-league football at the time, pulled off an impressive 2-1 win in the FA Cup against Division Three side, Leyton Orient. In the sides most recent match, Alex Revell’s men held Orient to a 0-0 draw at Brisbane Road in March earlier this year.
