📝 Match Preview: Exeter City v Leyton Orient

All the details ahead of Saturday's match at St James Park.

14 September 2019

Exeter City return to St James Park in Sky Bet League Two as the Grecians look to continue their positive start to the season against Leyton Orient in a 3pm kick-off on Saturday.

The Grecians go into the match first in the league table and will be looking to maintain their good run, and they come up against an Orient side who come into the match following a home defeat to Swindon Town.

Ahead of the match, manager Matt Taylor said: “We’ve not played them for a couple of seasons. They’re a team that have been through a lot on the back of such success last season, and then losing their manager in such devastating circumstances. The character they’ve got is there for everyone to see, and they’ll have a spirit about them which will be second to none.”

THE CONTEXT

As stated above, the Grecians have been performing well of late, and their last match saw them pick up a deserved 3-1 win over Carlisle United away from home. Leyton Orient will begin the game in 17th place following their 3-1 home defeat to Swindon Town.

LEYTON ORIENT’S VIEW

Following Orient’s defeat to Swindon, interim-manager Ross Embleton said: "You can look at it in two different ways, we're not giving away too many chances, but when people get them they're taking them or we're allowing them chances that are too easy to score from so it's a concern."

LAST TIME WE MET

The sides last met back in January 2017 when the Grecians picked up an impressive 4-0 win at St James Park.

David Wheeler put City ahead after just four minutes on the clock before Ryan Harley netted twice in the second half. Liam McAlinden then netted the fourth of the evening when he finished well in the 82nd minute.

📝 Match report: Exeter City 2 Leyton Orient 2

Nicky Law's late penalty ensures Grecians take a point at St James Park

14 September 2019

Sponsored by

Nicky Law struck a late penalty to ensure Exeter City picked up a 2-2 draw at St James Park.

The Grecians went ahead late in the first half through Pierce Sweeney's first goal of the season, before Lee Angol quickly brought Orient level just before the break.

Louis Dennis then saw his shot deflect off Aaron Martin and up in the net just after the restart, but Law calmly converted late on to continue City's unbeaten start to the league campaign.

Matt Taylor made no changes to the side that beat Carlisle United 3-1 at Brunton Park, as City looked to continue their positive run.

The Grecians started with great intent and Randell Williams carved out an opening of his own as he cut inside from the right and curled an effort on goal, which was subsequently dealt with by Dean Brill. 

With a quarter-of-an-hour played, City came close once more when Williams found space on the right flank and crossed towards the back-post, however Pierce Sweeney was unable to direct his header on target. 

Ryan Bowman was the first to really test Brill five minutes later, as Aaron Martin flicked on into the area. The centre forward smashed a half-volley, from a similar position to his goal against Mansfield Town, but this time the Orient goalkeeper’s torso got in the way. 

City were persistent in their pressure and they nearly had an opener through Law who swivelled and shot into the bottom right-hand corner expertly, only for referee Peter Wright to deem his first touch as handball. 

Sweeney was in amongst the action again as he retrieved the ball from a corner-kick to cross with venom, the ball came off of an Orient player and glanced the top of the crossbar forcing the ball out of play. 

Only seconds later however, Williams headed the ball back towards the on-rushing Sweeney who drilled a low half-volley past Brill to give City the lead.

Despite the Grecians’ superior dominance, the O’s equalised just before half-time as Dale Gorman miscued a long range effort only for the ball to fall into Lee Angol’s path to tap home. 

After a promising start to the second-half by City it was Orient’s Louis Dennis who got the goal in the 53rd minute as he cut in from the left and fired past Lewis Ward with help from a Martin deflection. 

The Grecians continued to push for a goal and an eventful goalmouth scramble almost led to one, but Dean Moxey, Bowman nor Sweeney, who were all involved, could force the ball into the back of the net. 

Alex Fisher, who came onto the pitch for Lee Martin, was millimetres away from connecting with another wicked Sweeney cross, however the visitors managed to clear.

With seven minutes of added time revealed from the fourth official, a sense of a comeback fell over St James Park, and that comeback came seconds later as Ben Seymour was fouled inside the penalty area. Law was the man to step up and he smashed in an equaliser to earn the Grecians a well deserved point.
