Leyton Orient vs Walsall Prediction
The hosts had a taste of success for the first time in five League games last week with a narrow 1-0 scoreline against Northampton on the road. However, the squad have already failed to keep up the momentum.
Their most recent matchup with AFC Wimbledon on the road in the EFL Trophy saw them at the losing end of a 3-0 scorecard. On the other hand, their counterparts Walsall succumbed to their fifth defeat of the campaign in their respective matchup in League Two, with Salford slotting three unanswered goals past them.
Be that as it may, though, it needs saying that the visitors have been showing promise in their recent clashes and have picked up the win in four of their previous five games. Furthermore, the away side are unbeaten in their last three outings and are currently sporting an impressive two-game winning streak on the road as well.
Nevertheless, given that Walsall have not been able to register a win against this foe in any of their previous six visits to this venue, half of which ended in a draw, a double chance is by far the safest punt at the moment.
Additionally, the guests have not been shy in searching for early goals and have scored all of their last four away goals in the first half of their respective games. Taking into account that Leyton Orient have also been finding the back of the net in the opening forty-five minutes in their last two clashes in a running here, count on either one side to break the deadlock before the break.
