Recent respective form guides

Leyton Orient's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While O's have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Bristol Rvs. is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the Pirates have hit 5 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Leyton Orient are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 22 points from their 24 games thus far. Bristol Rvs. find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 26 points from their 23 matches.
