Leyton Orient – Reading preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Leyton Orient vs Reading lineups.

Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient saw their Tuesday night match vs Lincoln abandoned after 84 minutes due to a crowd emergency. The O’s have enjoyed a decent season so far but they remain in the bottom half of the table. Still, with 2 home wins already Leyton have shown that on their return to League One, they have the intention to establish themselves in this division. 

Important centre-back Thompson is the only major injury issue, with his return not expected until December. Another important defender Beckles also nurses a minor problem but he hopes to recover on time and at least make the bench. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Brynn (GK), Cooper, Happe Turns, Archibald, Pratley, El Mizouni, Brown, Sanders, Pigott & Sotiriou 


Reading extended their winless run to 3 on Tuesday when losing 1-3 vs Northampton. Conceded the first goal very early and never looked like coming back after that. The Royals have now lost all of their 5 away league games and they’ve scored just 2 goals in those 5 matches on the road. 

Sit in the relegation zone but that is mainly due to the awful away form and the points deduction at the start of the season. 

The players lack motivation as they haven’t been paid their wages for two months. The owner has put the club for sale but no bids have been made yet. 

On top of all else Reading could be without as many as 8 players for this trip due to injuries and suspensions. 

The back line is badly depleted right now with 4 potential starters missing. Also, 3 of the main inner midfielders (Camara, Ejaria, Mbengue) are in the treatment room right now. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Button (GK), Bindon, Dean, Abbey, Carson, Elliott, Wing, Savage, Knibbs, Azeez & Kelvin

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

​Player to Watch: Ruel Sotiriou

Leyton’s striker Ruel Sotiriou has started the season very well. He already scored 5 goals and right now the O’s channel all of their forward actions through him. 

Sotiriou is second among all players in League One in terms of shot attempts in home matches. He’s shooting on sight every game and against the very shaky and badly crippled Reading side he will certainly fancy his chances to increase his goal tally.
