Leyton Orient vs Colchester Prediction

Leyton Orient will be on the back of a 2-3 win against Cambridge United in their previous league clash this season. It marked their only win in their last five league encounters.

With more losses than wins, Leyton has not been that successful in the campaign with their 15th spot in the table.

The host does enjoy their home ground advantage but has to see how much they can utilise it to their favor.

Besides that, Leyton has been winless in their past four home matches. Also, they have won only two games in their 11 home matches so far.

Meanwhile, Colchester has won their previous encounter with Carlisle in the campaign. Also, they are unbeaten in the last five league clashes.

Another three points would take Colchester into the top 7 in the league table. So, they will be aiming for the win.

Apart from that, the visitor has been unbeaten in the prior four away fixtures in the campaign. Also, they are unbeaten in eight of their 11 away games.

As such, Leyton will be at a backhand since their overall form is downward lately, especially at home. In the meantime, Colchester has a better chance as they have performing well even in their away matches in the campaign.

Hence, we can see that the visitor has more chance of winning the game. Since it is not their home ground, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game.
