Leyton Orient go into this fixture following on from a 1-1 League Two draw against Swindon Town.
The only name on the scoresheet from Leyton Orient was Omar Beckles (12'). Jacob Wakeling (64') was the scorer for Swindon Town.
Leyton Orient haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, finding the back of the net in one hundred percent of their last 6 matches.
They have totted up the amount of 9 during that period and have conceded a total of 5. While that may be of interest, time will tell if that trend will be replicated here in this game.
Taking a look at their past results, Leyton Orient:
- are unbeaten in the league by Colchester United in their last 2 games.
- are unbeaten in their last 12 league matches at home. They have been so resilient here.

Clashes with Colchester United have had a tendency of being somewhat tedious encounters latterly with a dearth of scoring being a common characteristic. During their past six clashes, a paltry gross goal total of 6 has been recorded between both them and their opposition at an average goals per match of 1.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Colchester United:
- haven't been beaten by Leyton Orient in games played away from home for the previous 5 matches in the league. A very good record, indeed.
- are without an away win for the past 2 matches in the league.

📋 Team News: Leyton Orient
The Leyton Orient boss Richie Wellens has no fitness worries whatsoever before this match with a fully healthy squad available for selection.
📋 Team News: Colchester United
Colchester United manager Ben Garner has multiple availability issues to deal with. Alan Judge (Knee Injury) and Tom Dallison (Ankle Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
We envisage that Leyton Orient will likely score more than once against Colchester United, who may well find it hard scoring a goal of their own.
We can therefore see a decent 2-0 victory for Leyton Orient when the full-time whistle blows.
