PREVIEW: LEYTON ORIENT

23 August 2019

SCENE SETTER

Reds make their first visit to Brisabane Road's Brever Stadium on Saturday since 2016 when we take on promoted Leyton Orient in a Sky Bet League 2 fixture.

THE FORM GUIDE

The O's produced the best result of the midweek round of league games when they came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Mansfield. It was the ideal return to form after they lost 3-0 at Macclesfield, 2-0 at Plymouth in the Carabao Cup and drew 0-0 at home to Stevenage in their previous three matches. They won their opening league game 1-0 at home to Cheltenham. Our 2-1 loss at home to Crewe on Tuesday was our first in four in League and Cup. 

PAST MEETINGS

There has never been a draw in ten previous League meetings, seven of which have been won by Crawley. Find out more here
