Stat Pack: Leyton Orient vs Swindon Town
8th placed Swindon Town are four points off the play-offs following two undefeated games in League One – 3-2 vs Port Vale and a goalless draw with Colchester last Friday night. In all competitions, Town are on a run of four games without defeat – albeit Peterborough did win the penalty shootout on Monday.
In the League One form guide, Swindon are 12th with two wins, two draws and two defeats in six.
Away, Swindon are 17th in the form guide with one win, two draws and three defeats in six games. Town won their previous away game 3-2 at Port Vale to make three away victories this season.
Swindon have not failed to score away in their previous two games. In defence, Town haven’t kept an away League One clean sheet in seven games.
2nd placed Leyton Orient are maintaining their form amongst the League One automatic promotion places, a position they regained following a midweek victory over Stevenage. Previous to that 2-0 win, Orient had been on a four game winless run, during which they won a single point.
Orient are 14th in the League One form guide with two wins, one draw and three defeats.
As hosts, Orient are ranked 15th following a run of three victories and three defeats.

Orient won the meeting earlier this season 3-1 at the County Ground.
Swindon haven’t beaten Orient in seven meetings.
Swindon haven’t won at Brisbane Road in three meetings. Their last victory was a 2-1 win in December 2008 – which was Danny Wilson’s first game as manager.
In those previous three meetings in East London, Town haven’t scored a goal and two of the three games have ended goalless.
Not sure how this game will go as Orient have been our bogey team in recent years. Our previous trips to Brisbane Road haven’t yielded much, particularly goals, and considering Leyton Orient are sitting 2nd in the table we’re probably going to be spanked. A draw sounds realistic…or is that hopeful…
Final-score: Leyton Orient 1-1 Swindon Town
Come on You Reds!
