Tom Ince (43') and Tyrese Campbell (89') scored for Stoke City.
The stats tell the story, and Leyton Orient have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 7 goals in total. Defensively, Leyton Orient just haven’t been too solid at all. Historical results aside, time will tell if the trend shall be sustained in this next match.

Team News: Oldham Athletic
There is just the sole fitness concern for the Oldham Athletic boss Selim Benachour to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy set of players. Danny Rogers (Shoulder Injury) will miss out.
We are thinking that The Latics could opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation for this game featuring Marek Rodak, Kenny Tete, Tosin Adarabioyo, Tim Ream, Antonee Robinson, Tom Cairney, Harrison Reed, Harry Wilson, Fabio Carvalho, Neeskens Kebano and Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Team News: Leyton Orient
Owing to a completely healthy group ready to go, the Leyton Orient manager Kenny Jackett has no fitness worries to report before this match.
We are inclined to think that The O's seem most likely to utilise a 3-4-2-1 lineup, giving starts to Max OLeary, Tomas Kalas, Rob Atkinson, Cameron Pring, Alex Scott, Han-Noah Massengo, Matthew James, Callum ODowda, Ayman Benarous, Andreas Weimann and Chris Martin.
We feel that over the course of the game, Oldham Athletic might well have a job on their hands to be putting a goal past this Leyton Orient team who we reckon will emerge victorious.
We therefore fancy a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 victory for Leyton Orient when the full-time whistle blows.
Hoping for a good game.
