Leyton Orient will be looking for back-to-back away wins when they travel to mid-table Peterborough on Tuesday evening.
O’s striker Jonathan Tehoue told leytonorient.com
‘It’s good for the atmosphere around the club, the fans and everyone. We’ll look forward to the next game on Tuesday.’
Peterborough Team News:
O’s will be boosted by the news that Peterborough’s star striker Craig Mackail-Smith is out of the game due to a one-game ban.
Player to watch: Aaron Mclean
Former O’s player Mclean has once again been in excellent form for Peterborough with 11 goals in all competitions so far this season.
Whilst he never performed in an Orient shirt, Mclean has been deadly in recent years with Peterborough and will be their main attacking threat in the absence of Mackail-Smith.
Leyton Orient Team News:
Like Peterborough, the O’s will be without a key player with defender Ben Chorley suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Bournemouth.
Player to watch: Terrell Forbes
High-scoring Peterborough will be a threat in a attack and in with the absence of Chorley, Forbes will need to defend well and lead the O’s back four.
Match Facts & Stats
Peterborough have dropped down the table to 11th after two heavy defeats in their last two league games, 5-1 to Charlton and 4-1 at Southampton (both admittedly hard games).
Orient are on a descent run of form, winning their last away game confidently 3-0 at Bristol Rovers. The O’s are 18th in the table but only five points behind Tuesday’s opposition.
The last time the teams met was two seasons ago when Peterborough won both encounters in the league (3-0 away and 3-2 at Brisbane Road)
The Os will be boosted by their recent good record, especially picking up their first away win in ten months the last time they travelled.
Peterborough do score (22) and concede (20) in near equal measures at home so a score draw would be a good result for the Orient.
