Leyton Orient - Oldham

Londoners have made an incredible run of results. They haven’t lost a game in the division since the New Year day (run of 12 games) and became a serious play-off candidate (I would have never predicted that watching them trashing by Charlton in August). At home, they’re unbeaten in 16 competitive matches, have seven wins of ten in the league and three in the row. Key striker Revell will have a late fitness test, midfielder Smith and defender Chorley are also in doubt.

Athletic have slipped into the middle of table and they’re now at the same distance from play-off and the relegation zone. They’re winless in last eight in league (losing five of those) and have three defeats in a row. Despite scoring twice in defeat against Wednesday, they had not scored a single goal in six games before that. Midfielder Furman and striker Reid are suffering with a virus and both are rated as in doubt.

Orient should be the big favourites here, matter of team quality, recent shape and motivation. And I like the price, had expected something around 1.60 - 1.70. Home win.
