📝 Match Preview: Leyton Orient (A)

All you need to know as City hit the road

14 August 2021

Exeter City will play their first away game in front of Grecians' supporters in 525 days when they travel to Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Following a goalless draw against Bradford City in the league opener, and another versus Wycombe in the Carabao Cup, the Grecians will look to take their strong defensive performances to the Breyer Group Stadium while also hoping to score their first goal of the season. 

Orient opened their season with two 1-1 draws - away at Salford in the league before losing to QPR on penalties on Wednesday. 

Covid-19 Test Results

Exeter City can confirm that, following testing of staff and players today, all members of the team have returned negative COVID tests.

The two players who tested positive earlier in the week will continue to isolate. We will continue to follow all the correct protocols and guidance from the EFL as the season progresses.

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

"When we travel in numbers it just shows our unity as a club," he said. 

"We are so well supported on our travels so to hear any noise will be absolutely brilliant. It's a long way wherever we go - our supporters are second to none."

Leyton Orient are a side that Matt feels have recruited strongly in the summer and feels Saturday's match will be a tough test.

"I watched their game on Wednesday and it was a really end to end game. 

"They have a really experienced manager with a lot of knowhow about him and we expect the team to be stronger than they were last season."
