Away Days: Leyton Orient

1 September 2023

Stevenage look to continue a positive start to their Sky Bet League One campaign as they travel to East London for a clash with Richie Wellens’ Leyton Orient…

Boro’s attention turns back to league football this Saturday after they were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on penalties against Exeter City earlier in the week. Before that, a goalless draw at The Lamex Stadium with Portsmouth meant that Stevenage picked up a valuable point in the league.

Stevenage are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Saturday’s opponents, with the most recent encounter being a memorable one. Orient travelled to a sold out Lamex Stadium as league leaders and were completely stunned as Boro picked up a marvellous 3-0 victory.

Opposition Lowdown

 Leyton Orient have had a mixed start to their campaign after claiming the Sky Bet League Two title at the end of last season. So far, they’ve picked up just one win, one draw and three losses in the league, meaning they sit eighteenth in the table after five matches.

Their only win of the season so far came last weekend as the O’s hosted Cambridge United, picking up a 2-0 victory in front of a home crowd. Summer signing Shaq Forde and League Two winner Theo Archibald grabbed the goals that afternoon.

Orient’s dangerman is Tunisian midfielder Idris El Mizouni. The 22-year-old has played every minute of their League One campaign so far after re-signing on loan, following a successful season in the fourth tier for The O’s.

The Manager 

Richie Wellens took over as Leyton Orient manager in March 2022 and led his side to League Two glory in his first full season in charge. He previously managed Oldham, Swindon, Salford and Doncaster, so has plenty of experience in the EFL. As a player, Wellens made over 600 appearances in midfield, most notably for Blackpool and Leicester City.

The Stadium 

Orient have played their home fixtures at Brisbane Road since 1937. The ground has a capacity of 9,271 with away supporters typically being housed in a section of the ‘East Stand’. The nearest London Underground station is Leyton, which is less than a ten-minute walk from Brisbane Road.


Scott Oldham has been appointed Match Referee for Saturday’s fixture with Leigh Crowhurst and Andrew Hickman as Assistants and Adrian Tranter as Fourth Official. Oddly enough, Oldham’s most recent Boro fixture was that memorable 3-0 victory over Leyton Orient last season.

Fan Behaviour

Supporters are reminded at all times that the throwing of objects, taking drugs, tragedy abuse, using pyros and discriminatory behaviour all risk a criminal record and a club ban, dangerous and illegal behaviour will not be tolerated by Stevenage Football Club.

Report: Leyton Orient 0-3 Stevenage

2 September 2023

A dominant performance as Stevenage take home three points from East London...

After a busy deadline day which saw three new players walk through the door, Stevenage made the short trip to East London to meet up with familiar foes Leyton Orient. It was the first encounter between the two clubs in the third tier for almost a decade.

The Gaffer made five changes from the side that picked up a hard-earned point against Pompey as Luther James-Wildin, Nathan Thompson, Dan Sweeney, Nick Freeman and brand-new striker Charlie McNeill all made the starting eleven.

Stevenage supporters could be heard loud and clear before kick-off which allowed the lads to start the game brightly, winning a corner after just thirteen seconds. Dan Butler provided the dangerous ball, with Finley Burns marginally missing the header.

The hosts had a surprise chance after six minutes, completely against the run of play, as Ruel Sotiriou ran through on goal. Taye Ashby-Hammond was quick off his line to put the forward under pressure as his effort shattered the crossbar, meaning the score remained goalless.

Manchester United loanee Charlie McNeill was keen to impress after signing for Stevenage a day prior. He displayed a quick burst of pace down the right-wing after ten minutes before finding Jamie Reid inside the area, but last-ditch defending denied Reidy a clear chance at goal.

Ten minutes later, McNeill fulfilled his task to impress as he grabbed the opening goal on his Stevenage debut. Dan Butler’s clever free kick to the front post caught The O’s completely off guard as McNeill’s first-time effort calmly found the bottom corner to put his new side in front.

Boro were pressurising the Orient defence once again after the half-hour mark as they looked to double their lead. Charlie McNeill was instrumental in yet another chance as he played a dangerous low ball into the area, finding Jamie Reid who laid it off to Jordan Roberts, with his effort flying just over the crossbar.

A trademark Stevenage set-piece occurred minutes before the interval as the visitors from Hertfordshire got their second of the afternoon. Dan Butler’s corner met the towering head of Carl Piergianni who knocked it down for Dan Sweeney to tap in to double his side’s lead going into the break.

No changes were made by either side at half-time as the second half soon got underway with Stevenage possessing a two-goal lead. Boro continued to press and work hard in order to prevent the hosts from getting back in the game.

On the hour mark, Charlie McNeill was substituted off and deservedly received a superb ovation from the travelling support. It was Elliott List to take his place, looking to see out the victory.

Orient did try to crawl back into the game, but as time progressed, they had a mountain to climb and Stevenage, who looked rather comfortable, weren’t allowing them any glimmer of hope. Ethan Galbraith had a rare chance to nick one back for the O’s but his effort was deflected out for a corner.

Despite the two-goal lead, Boro were not afraid to seek a third as they remained relentless in their pressing.

Eventually, with ten minutes to go of the ninety, they found that third goal to really kill the game off. The ball couldn’t have fallen any more perfectly for Nick Freeman who saw the opportunity to volley from thirty yards, with his effort smashing off the crossbar and into the back of the net. A goal of the season contender for sure.

Richie Wellens’ men had an even bigger mountain to climb yet Stevenage still looked to press their every touch. Five minutes remained and goalscorer Nick Freeman made way for Alex MacDonald who slotted into midfield to professionally see out the game.

In additional time, there were three more changes from the Gaffer with Harry Anderson, Harrison Neal and Reece Hannam coming on for Jordan Roberts, Dan Sweeney and Jamie Reid who could all be proud of their performances.

Boro had absolutely no worries from there as they saw the game out to perfection. The referee eventually blew his final whistle to send Stevenage back to Hertfordshire with a massive three points to keep them at the top end of the table.

Attendance: 8,287 including 826 away supporters.
