Tip Reasoning

  • Leyton Orient haven’t won in their last six away matches
  • Leyton Orient have lost their last two away games 1-0
  • 50 league positions separate these two teams
  • Under 2.5 goals has occurred in seven of Stokes last nine matches

Orient’s away form has halted their season

Leyton Orient made a bright start to their League Two campaign being right up there with the pacesetters early on. However, some slack away form, particularly of late where they haven’t won in their last six on the road, has seen them slip out of the play-off spots. Orient’s potency in front of goal can be of particular concern to manager Kenny Jackett. They have only scored once in last three games on their travels and have lost the last two games away from Brisbane Road both 1-0.

Bet365 crowd set for another low scorer

Stoke City currently sit 8th place in the Championship just five points off 6th place Huddersfield. Their success this season has been built largely on a solid defence and have managed to keep nine clean sheets in the league this campaign. Seven of Stoke City’s last nine matches have seen under 2.5 goals been scored. When stoke win they tend to require a clean sheet, their last four victories have all been to nil.

Neither of these sides are particularly free scoring whilst neither are likely to be at their sharpest given the impact Covid has had on preparations. This looks set to be a low scoring contest. However, 50 league positions separate these two sides and I expect Stoke to have enough quality to progress into the 4th round. I’ll take them in the win and under 2.5 match goals market.
