Match Preview: Exeter City vs Leyton Orient

4 September 2015

A look ahead to the game against the table-toppers

EXETER CITY vs LEYTON ORIENT
SKY BET LEAGUE 2
ST JAMES PARK
SATURDAY 5TH SEPTEMBER 2015
KICK-OFF: 3:00PM

EXETER CITY are posed perhaps their biggest challenge yet this season as Leyton Orient visit St James Park.

Barnet, Dagenham & Redbridge, Stevenage, Newport and Bristol Rovers have been the victims as the O's have stormed to the League 2 summit - apart from Manchester City, they are the only side with a one hundred per cent record.

That achievement has not gone unnoticed - Orient manager Ian Hendon has just been named the League 2 Manager of the Month, while midfielder Dean Cox has picked up the player award.

Tom Nichols, Christian Ribeiro and Arron Davies are all hoping to come into contention for the Grecians, while Jordan Moore-Taylor is looking for a first League outing of the season after completing the full ninety minutes in the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Portsmouth. The only two Grecians definitely out are Joel Grant (international duty) and Will Hoskins (knock).



You can pay on the gate to see City take on the league leaders at St James Park. Hope to see you all there!



EXETER CITY 3-0 LEYTON ORIENT - ST JAMES PARK - APRIL 9 2012

An opener by Jake Taylor was followed by a brace from Liam Sercombe as the Grecians blew Orient away in a League 1 clash the last time they visited Exeter.

"I do desperately want a goal, don't get me wrong. But my game has changed over the years and I am not as prolific as I used to be when I was scoring twenty-five goals a season. But I want goals and I am desperate to get goals because I know that when I get one, I will go on a run." - Clinton Morrison, speaking to the Western Morning News
