Gillingham vs Leyton Orient Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Gillingham

The main objective for Gillingham has already been achieved, staying in League Two. Even though there are a few games left before the season shuts down, there is only a slight chance things could change. The fans were hoping that their team could at least fight for promotion playoffs, but that wasn't going to happen with the club playing inconsistently throughout the year.

Provisional lineup: Morris, McKenzie, Masterson, Ehmer, Alexander, Jefferies, Dieng, Williams, Lapslie, MacDonald, Nichols.

Leyton Orient

While the rest of the league is in a battle on their terms, Leyton Orient has been doing steady work in maintaining their form and keeping the top position from the competition. They are the best team in the league this season and by a large margin. Looking to lock up the top spot will be a prerogative for the team in the next couple of games which already seems like the foregone conclusion. They have built a ten-point advantage at the top, and with the way they are performing at the moment, the margin could further rise.

Provisional lineup: Vigouroux, James, Beckles, Turns, Hunt, Pratley, El Mizouni, Smyth, Moncur, Sadlier, Sotiriou.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Paul Smyth

There are plenty of heroes for Leyton Orient this season, and Paul Smyth is certainly one of them. He has scored ten league goals alongside three assists for the league-leading team and he will be awarded promotion at the end of the season.
