Tip Reasoning

  • Stevenage have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 home league games.
  • 4 of Stevenage’s last 7 home league games have ended 0-0.
  • Leyton Orient have lost their last 3 away games to nil.
  • The sides drew 0-0 when they met earlier on in the season.

Stevenage desperate for a win

Stevenage may well have finished just a point short of the play-off places last season but are pulling up no such trees this campaign. Indeed, their performances to date have been utterly dreadful and they find themselves on course for relegation to the National League, coming into this game rock bottom with just 22 points to their name after 30 games.

A surprise 4-0 win at Cambridge a couple of weeks ago had hopes high of a revival but the hosts have since gone onto lose their last 3 games across all competitions and confidence is at rock bottom once again. Stevenage have won just 3 league games all season and having failed to score in 4 of their last 5 home league games, that’s not a streak that looks like improving on Saturday.

Leyton Orient looking for rare away win

Meanwhile, after securing their return to league football last season, this campaign was all about retaining League Two status for Leyton Orient. They’ve not been the most impressive of outfits but the visitors are currently just about on course to do that; currently 20th and 5 points clear of the drop zone having collected a 31 point total. 

Facing the league’s worst side this weekend, Leyton Orient will be targeting 3 points but their away record doesn’t suggest that’ll it’ll be an easy task as regards securing them. Indeed, Orient have lost their last 3 away matches without even so much as scoring and are clearly not a powerful force on their travels.

A drab game is expected

Ultimately, we’re expecting Saturday’s game to be dull and devoid of quality. There’s a reason why Stevenage are rock bottom and Leyton Orient aren’t too far ahead of them and that’s because both are far from strong units and find it difficult to secure sequences of positive results.

All things considered, we think two struggling sides will cancel each other out in this one and for that reason, feel that backing a draw and for it to be goalless is the best way to play as far as the betting is concerned. The sides drew 0-0 when they met earlier on in the season and that’s a scoreline that’s not hard to imagine it ending on Saturday, given the respective attacking struggles of each team.
