Stoke to Win
After a gap of twelve years, Leyton Orient and Stoke City meet again in a competitive setting. Stoke City earned an Extra Time win in that meeting and should replicate their success again. The Potters ply their trade two divisions above their rivals and should not find it difficult to overcome them in their own backyard.
Correct Score – 2:1
It is interesting to note that three of the last four results witnessed by Stoke City and Leyton Orient have been 1-2. Both sides saw the scoreline against them. The two-division advantage should work in Stoke's favour but their backline will come under pressure. As a consequence, we should see the scoreline repeat itself as they have to sweat it out for the three points on offer.
