Our first pick for Scunthorpe vs Leyton Orient settles on BTTS. With a better record against Leyton Orient in this fixture, we feel Scunthorpe will find the net despite a poor run of form. The hosts failed to score only once in their last five matches.
The visitors will score first
Defensive woes have been a major concern for Scunthorpe head coach, Keith Hill. Not much will have changed for the new head coach coming to this game. It is why we feel the hosts will be vulnerable defensively to hand Leyton Orient the first goal of the match.
Leyton Orient to win the first half
There is every indication that Leyton Orient will outplay Scunthorpe in this fixture. Thus, we find no other reason why the visitors cannot win the first half of this match.
Despite an impressive record of 8W, 3D and 2L in the last 13 encounters with Leyton Orient, Scunthorpe’s chances of winning will depend on how they turn things around on matchday. Our team previews below have the details.
There is no doubt Scunthorpe look to build on their good record against Leyton Orient in this match. However, a series of poor performances that denied the hosts a win in the last five matches is a serious headache for head coach, Keith Hill. The new manager has failed to inspire right from the start, bagging 1D and 1D in two games. It is the more reason we think the hosts will struggle in this game. A poor defence on the home side should hand Leyton Orient the first goal in this match.
Leyton Orient has one mission coming to this fixture, which is to aim for the top five places. The visitors sit only one point outside the top five and so, winning this fixture is a top priority for head coach, Kenny Jackett. After 22 games in charge, the visiting manager boasts 1.77 points. A good run of form has seen the visitors go unbeaten in the last ten games and this fixture should easily end in favour of Leyton Orient Kenny Jackett keeps his tactics intact for this fixture.
