Match Preview: Leyton Orient (H)

15 December 2023

Cheltenham Town are back in action at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium for the first time in three weeks as they host Richie Wellens' Leyton Orient on Saturday afternoon (3:00PM).

Darrell Clarke’s team is eager to reclaim their winning momentum in the upcoming clash against Orient, following a draw and a loss to Bristol Rovers and Charlton Athletic respectively.

Adding to the Robins optimism is the impressive performance of Will Goodwin, who enters the game having scored in each of his last three matches. Goodwin currently leads Cheltenham's scoring charts this season with 5 goals in 14 appearances. 

In recent years, Town have dominated this fixture securing victories in the last three matchups against the O's. 

On the other hand, Wellens' side find themselves in a challenging position of late, having suffered losses in their last 2 games and drawing the two preceding fixtures.

Despite their struggles, their top striker, Ruel Sotiriou, has managed to score seven goals this season. However, he has been goalless for the past five games, and will be keen to see if he can rediscover his goal-scoring form.

Match Reports

Report and reaction: Robins 1-2 Leyton Orient

16 December 2023

The Robins suffered late heartbreak at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium, falling to a 2-1 defeat to Leyton Orient this afternoon.

Ben Williams was sent off for two bookable offences early in the first half but that didn’t faze the Robins who went ahead through Will Goodwin’s penalty.

However, with the clock ticking down Shaq Forde’s and Ethan Galbraith’s shots were diverted into the Robins goal via wicked deflections to give the visitors all three points.

“It’s very raw at the minute,” said Robins manager Darrell Clarke post-match.

“We’re devastated to come away with nothing as I thought the boys were magnificent  with 10 men for such a long period of the game.

“Like I said to the lads, sometimes in football it can kick you down but it’s how you respond.”

The Robins started the game on the front foot with Will Ferry displaying some quick feet to beat his man down the left hand side before flashing a ball across the six yard box that captain Sean Long lifted over.

The afternoon took a turn for the worse after 18 minutes when defender Williams was booked twice within a minute and subsequently given his marching orders by referee Tom Reeves.

Orient began to grow in confidence and Darren Pratley rattled the crossbar from close range with his header from a Theo Archibald corner.

But despite the man disadvantage, it was the Robins who dictated play in the second half as George Lloyd saw a header cleared away, Tom Pett’s free-kick whistled over and Goodwin saw a volley held by O's keeper Sol Brynn.

The pressure on the visitors continued to mount and told in the 67th minute after more clever footwork from Ferry saw him burst between two men before Pratley brought him down in the box.

Goodwin stepped up for the resulting penalty and blasted it down the middle with Brynn diving to his right, to net his fourth goal in as many games.

Orient stepped up their attack and after a pair of unthreatening shots from Ruel Sotiriou, substitute Forde’s shot was diverted into his own net by the unfortunate Long seconds before added time.

And deep into that added time, Southwood rushed off his line to deny Sotiriou before Galbraith’s shot deflected in off Curtis Davies, leaving the goalkeeper stranded and Town empty handed.

CHELTENHAM TOWN (3-5-2): Southwood; Davies, Freestone, B. Williams; Long (c), Sercombe (Smith 29), Bonds, Pett (Thompson 83), Ferry; Lloyd (Keena 83), Goodwin. Subs not used: Pardington (Gk), Bradbury, Peupion, Butler-Oyedeji.
