Freeview: Duff on Leyton Orient

13 February 2020

Michael Duff is expecting a Leyton Orient team in form and with a dangerous attacking edge to present his team with their next challenge on Saturday.

You have to go all the way back to the first day of the season when the two teams last clashed, with Orient, who were newly promoted from the National League, clinching three points with a 1-0 win.

Now they meet again at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Saturday on what is sure to be a special occasion with the Robins wearing a one-off all-white kit as part of the club's partnership with The Hollie Gazzard Trust - the club charity partners for the 2019/20 season.

Duff is anticipating a testing afternoon against an Orient outfit who defeated Mansfield Town in midweek.

"I think they've lost one in six. They've had some really good performances and some really good results," he said.

"It'll be a tough game and a completely different one to the one we played on the first day of the season.

"They played a different shape then. They've gone to a 4-3-3. It's a really attacking front three - it's not two wingers - it's almost three centre forwards on the pitch.

"They've got good delivery frome wide areas as well. Technically they look good because they're a team full of left footers, I don't think I've ever seen so many left footers in a team in my life. They look a good team."
