MATCH PREVIEW: Leyton Orient vs Newport County

30 September 2022

Newport County will need to end a 10-game unbeaten run for Leyton Orient in order to get three points on Saturday.

Orient currently top the League Two table with a record-breaking start of nine wins and a draw coming in the opening 10 games of the campaign.

County are without a win in four, but will be uplifted by Saturday's draw at Carlisle and will take inspiration from our last trip to Brisbane Road which ended in a 1-0 win thanks to Cameron Norman's first goal for the Exiles.

Newport's only definite absentees remain Offrande Zanzala and Matt Dolan with hamstring and ankle issues respectively while James Rowberry is "monitoring" Thierry Nevers' back spasm which needs to be managed correctly.

While the two sides are having contrasting seasons so far, County will be the team with the higher goal scorer in the division so far with Omar Bogle edging Orient's Paul Smyth 5-4 in the league.

Rowberry and his side will also take solace in the underlying data showing that County's performances will lead to points sooner rather than later - with the League Two Expected Goals table (xG) having County in 8th with the Exiles eight points better off. 

Tickets for the trip to London are available here.
