Macclesfield vs Leyton Orient Match Preview


On Saturday afternoon, Mark Kennedy’s Macclesfield Town face a tough match as they travel to Brisbane Road to take on Leyton Orient.

The Silkmen have lost their last two matches, both by a goal to nil, against Newport County and Northampton Town, so will be looking to turn their form around against Orient.

The home side, meanwhile, have won two out of their last three league fixtures, including an impressive 3-0 away win at Stevenage.

The visitors currently sit 22nd in the League Two table, on 28 points, but have a game in hand, which should help them in their fight for survival.

The O’s are on 34 points after 31 games and are in 18th place but have conceded a woeful 49 goals this season.

Ross Embleton’s men will be bolstered by the return of winger James Dayton from suspension who has served his three-match suspension following his sending off against Northampton.

Although, the clash comes too soon for Kazaiah Sterling, Jobi McAnuff, Sam Ling and Brendon Shabani who are all still on the sidelines.

For their opponents, Shilow Tracey, who joined Macc on-loan from Tottenham on deadline day, could be in line to make his debut in the game.

Also, Adam Dawson and Peter Vincenti are both available after returning from loan spells, while Theo Archibald is in contention to play as well.

One man that the Cheshire-based team will be without is former director of football Tobias Phoenix, who left the club on Thursday.

Phoenix, who was appointed by his old employees under Sol Campbell, has joined League One side Bolton Wanderers to become their Head of Football Operations.

The last time the two teams met was back in the National League in 2017, when Macclesfield beat Leyton Orient thanks to a Scott Wilson goal.
