Colchester vs Leyton Orient
England – League Two
Date: Tuesday, 1 March 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET

Leyton Orient is on a pathetic run in the league losing the last 4 league games in succession. They are only 5 points from safety and are level on points with Stevenage who are just below them. Colchester United are only a spot above from the relegation zone losing the last 2 league schedules. It has been 4 games since they tasted a victory in the league and they hope to turn the tables in the upcoming fixture as they travel to Colchester Community Stadium this Tuesday.

Colchester vs Leyton Orient Prediction

The O’s are at the 18th spot on the standing with 33 points from 30 games. They won 7 times in the league while drawing on 12 and losing on 11 other occasions. They scored 38 in total while conceding a sum of 31 till now.

Leyton’s 4th loss in a row came under the hands of Bristol Rovers, losing 0-2 last week. They have been scored against in 4 of their previous 5 clashes, leaking 7 goals past their defense.

On the other side, The U’s reside at the 21st position on the table with only 31 points. Of the 32 matches played, they won only 7 games while drawing on 10 and losing on 15 other occasions. Their total goals to conceding ratio stands at 29:46 showing their dreadful defensive layout.

Colchester United lost the last league fixture to Hartlepool by 2 goals to 1 making it twice on consecutive. Over the prior 5 league fixtures, they have conceded a total of 9 while their own forwards scored only 5 times from the same.

The hosts have lost just 3 of their 25 home games against Leyton Orient with two of those defeats coming in the last five games. We however feel that a draw is the likeliest outcome as both sides are struggling as of recent and they will tend to defend rather than going all out.
