Tip Reasoning

  • Leyton Orient are on a run of four victories in six matches
  • Scunthorpe have only won once on the road this season
  • The Os have kept clean sheets in three of their last five

Orient want to keep their momentum going

Richie Wellens has certainly made an impact since taking charge at Brisbane Road, with Leyton Orient winning half of his eight games in charge and losing just twice.

They have moved well clear of the relegation zone, now sitting firmly in mid-table on 49 points, 12 clear of the bottom two, so a win here could make them mathematically safe.

The London club are unbeaten in their last three on home soil, including wins over Rochdale and Barrow, while they have kept three clean sheets in their last five outings.

Scunthorpe in need of a miracle

With five games to go, Scunthorpe are 13 points from safety in League Two and are all but certain to get relegated out of the Football League.

Keith Hill’s side head into this fixture having accumulated just 24 points across the course of the season, of which only 10 have come on the road.

They have lost six matches in a row, are without a win in 11 and have scored just five goals over a 14 match period, one of which was an own goal.

This fixture is surely only going one way. Scunthorpe have had a disastrous season and will surely have their relegation confirmed here. I predict a Leyton Orient win to nil, selecting 2-0 as a correct score.
