Leyton Orient vs Northampton Town Match Analysis & Prediction
13/02/2024 10:45 pm
Two teams looking to make a charge for the League One playoff spots will meet on Tuesday night as Leyton Orient play host to Northampton Town at the Gaughan Group Stadium.
While the hosts saw their eight-game unbeaten run come to an end last time out, the visitors are without a win in their last three matches.
Prior to their 2-1 defeat at Barnsley, Leyton Orient were flying high, boasting an impressive eight-game unbeaten run that propelled them into the playoff picture.
Their run included dominant victories over Cambridge United, league leaders Portsmouth and third-placed Bolton Wanderers, highlighting their attacking prowess.
They also secured a creditable draw at Reading before successive victories over Carlisle United and Port Vale further boosted their ambitions, but the defeat to Barnsley ended their hot streak, leaving them eight points behind sixth-placed Stevenage.
Richie Wellens’ side, who are enjoying a strong first season in League One after promotion from League Two, currently sit ninth with 45 points from 31 matches.
Northampton Town, who are defying expectations after promotion from League Two, have mostly held a top-half position this season.
However, recent form has been mixed, with defeats to Shrewsbury Town and Portsmouth followed by a disappointing 1-1 draw against Bolton Wanderers despite a red card for their opponent.
Currently in 11th position in the league standings and 12 points adrift of the playoffs, their attention has shifted to securing a top-half finish in their first season back in League One.
John Brady will know his side are underdogs in this match given their opponent’s recent home record, but they will be looking to continue their positive record against them and bounce back from recent setbacks.
