Leyton Orient v Peterborough Preview, League One, Tuesday 13th May 2014

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade and his players will have been happy with their first leg performance at the London Road Stadium where they managed to secure an important 1-1 draw with Peterborough which now puts them in control for this second leg match on tuesday night in front of their home fans at the Matchroom Stadium.

It was a hard fought game and Peterborough got off to the perfect start when their inspirational young midfielder Britt Assombalonga and current top goalscorer for his club put the hosts ahead after just 16mins played, but Darren Ferguson’s side failed to capitalise on that early goal and with just 18mins of the game left to play Leyton Orient’s young midfielder Moses Odubajo silenced the home crowd when grabbing what could turn out to be a very important equaliser on 72mins.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Manager Russell Slade also has no injuries or suspensions to worry about so he can also choose his strongest lineup available for this game. Kevin Lisbie and Dave Mooney who have had a decent partnership up front this season with 35 goals between them will probably lead the attack up front for the hosts.

Peterborough United Team News:

Manager Darren Ferguson has no injuries or suspensions to contend with for this game and has a full squad at his disposal to choose his starting lineup from. Nicholas Ajose will most likely lead the attack up front with support in behind coming from Britt Assombalonga and Danny Swanson.

Leyton Orient v Peterborough United Match Betting Odds Market

Leyton Orient have the all important home advantage along with a crucial away goal and that puts them firmly in the driving seat for this important second leg game, so no real surprise to see the online bookmakers having them priced up as the clear favourites to win this game at odds of 6/5 with Coral (Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw is obviously a very possible outcome in this game as with nothing seperating the two sides in the first leg and very little between them on the recent form statistics, it could be worth getting something on this game finishing all square as your main cover bet at generous odds of 12/5 with Sky Bet (£30 Free Bets for New Customers).

Peterborough United will obviously fancy their chances of causing a bit of an upset in this game and despite not winning the first leg game over the weekend they do have the squad capable of getting the job done and their current best price of 11/4 with Bet365 (£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers) does look a bit overpriced in my opinion.

Leyton Orient v Peterborough United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A tough game to be confident of predicting a clear winner because as we saw over the weekend there really is very little between these two clubs and this game certainly has the potential of going either way on tuesday night.

Leyton Orient lose their league fixture against Peterborough United this season when having home advantage and that will obviously be playing on the minds of the players as they take to the field for this game and with the squad that Peterborough have available to them, I can definitely see them scoring at least one goal during this game.

However, I also believe that Leyton Orient will score as well and with their home fans fully behind them they do look the more likely winners when all is said and done and with the average goals per game statistics indicating that this game should see at least 3 goals scored on tuesday night we should be in for a very exciting game.

My Banker prediction for this game is going to be Highest Scoring Half – Second as looking back at previous meetings between the two clubs played at the Match Room Stadium, the goals have all came in the second half of those matches played.

My Saver is going to Total Match Goals 2 or 3 as with the first leg game having finished all square at 1-1 I can definitely see this game following suit and this game also seeing a very similar score-line.
