TRANMERE VS LEYTON ORIENT PREDICTION, TIPS & STATS

Leyton Orient will be aiming to extend their slender lead at the top of League Two with a win as they travel to Prenton Park to face Tranmere on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts currently find themselves in 15th place in the league, on 35 points, having picked up 9 wins, 8 draws and 9 defeats from their 26 league games so far this campaign. Micky Mellon’s side have been struggling as of late and are without a win in their last three outings.

Rovers are yet to win in 2023, having recorded a defeat against Crewe and draws against Sutton and Walsall. Last time out, Tranmere were unable to find a winner against Walsall despite having an extra man for the best part of 15 minutes.

Walsall took the lead in the 72nd minute, however were unable to hold onto their lead for long as Tranmere were able to find an equaliser as Josh Hawkes found the bottom corner from a free-kick. Despite applying pressure to 10-man Walsall, Rovers were unable to find a winner in the dying stages of the game.

Leyton Orient currently occupy the summit of the League Two table and look to have one hand on automatic promotion come the end of the season. The O’s have amassed 57 points in the league, following 17 wins, 6 draws and four defeats from their 27 league games.

Richie Wellens’ side have been struggling to extend their lead at the top of the table in recent weeks and have only won six points out of the last eighteen that were available in the league. A lack of goals has been of primary concern as Orient have only scored once in their last six outings. This is a far cry from the six games prior to this, where they netted 10 times.

Last weekend, the league leaders suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to second placed Stevenage as they were hindered by a red card on the stroke of half time. Early strikes from Jamie Reid and Jordan Robers fired Stevenage towards a compelling victory over the league leaders.

The Red Card of Idris El Mizouni on the stroke of half time, followed a worrying trend of Orient red cards in recent weeks. The O’s have recorded three red cards in four games and they will have to improve their discipline if they are to remain within the automatic promotion places come the end of the season.

These sides have met five on five prior occasions in this tier of English Football. This has been an unpredictable fixture, as Tranmere have won three, whilst Leyton Orient have won twice. We believe that this tie will also have a winner come the end of 90 minutes.

Leyton Orient came out on top when these sides met in the reverse fixture at the beginning of this campaign. Rovers fell behind in the first half, when Josh Dacres-Cogley found the back of his own net. Orient completed a successful day at the office as Paul Smytrh found a second in the 85th minute.

Leyton Orient are narrowly favoured ahead of this tie @ 8/5, whilst a home win for Tranmere is currently priced @ 9/5. We are backing Paul Smyth to win and Leyton Orient to win @ 11/2. Smyth is Orient’s top scorer so far this campaign with nine goals and he should be confident ahead of this tie considering he netted in the reverse fixture.

Tranmere Team News

Tranmere have not reported any new injury concerns ahead of this weekend. Micky Mellon is unlikely to ring the changes to his attacking line, as Hemmings and Mumbongo have formed a strong partnership up front.

Leyton Orient Team News

Orient defender Dan Happe is set for an extended period of time on the sidelines after he limped off against Northampton.
