Match Preview - Leyton Orient v Rovers

21 February 2022

Rovers face a trip to the capital tomorrow evening to take on Kenny Jackett's Leyton Orient at The Breyer Group Stadium.

The Gas head into Tuesday evening's fixture off the back of a rampant 0-4 away victory against Stevenage in a game that saw four different goalscorers for Rovers with Newcastle loanee, Elliot Anderson scoring his first goal in blue and white quarters. The upcoming fixture against Leyton Orient was originally meant to be Rovers' first game of 2022 had it not been cancelled as a result of a COVID-19 outbreak in the Rovers squad. The Gas will be looking to make it three wins on the bounce tomorrow evening after successfully seeing off Stevenage and Sutton United in our last two outings. Below is all the essential info ahead of tomorrow's tussle in East London.

Manager's Preview

Form Guide

Despite a bright start to the 21/22 Sky Bet League Two campaign, Orient have struggled to find form or results recently. Since their good early season form, Orient have failed to win in their last nine games in the league with their last victory being a 4-1 home win against Swindon Town in early December. Orient's previous fixture against Harrogate Town was called off due to the snowy conditions at The EnviroVent Stadium. As a result, Orient go into Tuesday's game with a full week between games. The team from East London currently occupy 18th place in the league standings with a 33 point return from 29 games so far this season.

Breathing down his neck is Aaron Drinan who currently has 10 goals in the Sky Bet League Two this season. Smith is statistically Orient's best performer this season according to Whoscored.com with an overall rating of 7.52.
