Leyton Orient vs Grimsby Prediction
Leyton Orient let down the traveling faithful in their last League Two clash after Walsall edged past them with a 1-0 scorecard. Despite their counterparts having a man sent off six minutes after the hour mark in that latter matchup, the hosts failed to capitalize on their advantage and ultimately made the trip back home empty-handed.
With just twenty-six points to their name, the home side are currently sitting nineteenth on the ladder, three points shy of Grimsby.
On the other hand, the visitors completed back to back wins for the second time this season, by getting the better of Mansfield at home and Salford on the road with a 1-0 scoreline. The guests are also unbeaten in their last four games in the fourth division. Impressively, they have stumbled just once in their past six as well.
To make matters worse for the hosts, Grimsby have not been at the losing end in any of their previous three trips here. With Leyton Orient’s last win at home, coming way back in October, it goes without saying that Grimsby are likely to keep their unbeaten h2h streak intact.
Nevertheless, given that the visiting cavalry have shared the spoils in three of their last five outings, the safest punt in this one would have to be a double chance.
Furthermore, irrespective of the result, the hosts have not gone done without a fight. They have found the back of the net in eight of their past ten games here. And have also racked up fourteen goals to their tally in the process.
Meanwhile, Grimsby have kept a clean sheet just four times on the road this season. Taking into account that they conceded four goals in the reverse fixture too, count on Leyton Orient to have their scoring boots on along with the guests this weekend.
