Leyton Orient Travel to Carlisle United
Leyton Orient on the Road as They Aim to Maintain Their Solid Start
Leyton Orient face a 600 mile round trip to Carlisle United this weekend with both sides looking to continue their unbeaten start to the new League Two season.
The O’s have won one and drawn one, scoring four and conceding one. On the other hand, the Cumbrians have won one and drawn two, scoring two and conceding one in the process. Both sides occupy places in the top eight.
The east London side will be looking to build their momentum. Following their 3-0 win over Exeter City last weekend, Kenny Jackett’s side will want to build on a fantastic performance and result.
Even in their Carabao Cup defeat to Queens Park Rangers on penalties, the O’s looked impressive against their Championship opponents.
The Cumbrians Looking to Kick-Start Their Campaign
On the other hand, despite remaining unbeaten so far, Carlisle United could do with a win. Three points against Orient would really boost their early season form.
Starting their season with a 0-0 draw at home to Colchester United, they picked up their first defeating Swindon Town 2-1. Last weekend, they drew 0-0 on their travels against Port Vale. Finishing tenth last season, the Brunton Park faithful will be hoping for a strong push for a play-off place this season.
Manager Chris Beech has made progress with the club since being appointed as head coach in November 2019. However, that progression could be defined by the club’s ability to finally make the playoffs this season.
Leyton Orient have some momentum off their impressive win last weekend, however, Carlisle are unbeaten like the O’s despite a goalless draw last time out.
It’s early days but points from the off will be vital. However, this fixture might have draw written all over it.
A 2-2 draw would be a fair result with goals from both sides.
