Preview: Midweek Orient Assignment

17 September 2019

Crewe Alexandra head to Leyton Orient with fire in their bellies having been denied any points against Cambridge at the weekend.

Crewe have still won five of the first eight games this season despite Saturday's injustice & head to the O's full of confidence.

As a supporter, if you can't make the trip to East London, then the match is the third one this season that will be live streamed on iFollow the Alex - meaning you can watch the game on your laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Click here for more information.

Orient have enjoyed a mixed start to the season. Their league record reads won two, drew three, lost three - but does include an impressive draw at high-flying Exter City on Saturday.

New signings Lee Angol & Josh Wright have started the season well and have been amongst the goals so will need to be handled carefully at Brisbane Road.

Crewe last visited Orient in 2016 and won 2-0 thanks to goals from George Cooper and Harry Davis. The O's were relegated to the National League that season.

Whether you're going to the game in person or watching on iFollow - it's certainly not one you'll want to miss!

Date: Tuesday 17 September 2019

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Brisbane Road

Referee: Josh Smith

Previous Meeting at Host Club: Leyton Orient 0-2 Crewe (October 2016)

Team News:

Crewe: Paul Green will miss the trip to East London through suspension having been dismissed against Cambridge on Saturday.

That could hand a chance to one of James Jones, Oli Finney or Callum Ainley to come in as a like-for-like replacement, or Dave Artell may choose to switch to another formation.

Owen Dale & Chuma Anene are both pushing for starts after impressive cameo's from the bench against Cambridge.

Tune in to the Alex twitter, @crewealexfc, at 6:45pm for the breaking team news.


Leyton Orient: Manager Ross Embleton could go with the same eleven who recorded an impressive point away at Exeter on Saturday.

It would've been three points too, but for an injury time Grecians equaliser, and Orient were impressive in Devon.

They picked up six yellow cards, but no injuries or suspensions from the clash so Josh Wright & Lee Angol remain the danger men in the O's side.
