Preview: Leyton Orient v Barrow

13 January 2023

Discover all you need to know, as we focus on Barrow's trip to Leyton Orient.

Leyton Orient vs Barrow
Saturday 14th January, kick-off 3pm
Brisbane Road
Sky Bet League Two

The Leyton Orient we know today grew from humble origins, beginning in Homerton in 1881 as Glyn Cricket Club.

Evolving many times throughout 140 years, the Club has had to overcome great obstacles. We will of course always remember the three Clapton Orient players who made the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives in WW1; Sargeant Richard McFadden, Private William Jonas, and Private George Scott.

Orient achieved Division Three success in 1969/70 starting a fruitful decade for the club with the closing seeing them reach the semi-final of the FA Cup in 1977/78, where they would be defeated by Arsenal 3-0 at Stamford Bridge. Ipswich would go onto win the FA Cup that season in front of a packed 100,000 at the old Wembley

In more recent years, the Club suffered at the hands of bad ownership and fell out of the Football League for the first time, relegated at the end of the 2016/17 season.

Whilst the effects were felt throughout the Club, under the stewardship of new owners Eagle Investments, led by boyhood Orient fan and now Chairman Nigel Travis, the club was able to stabilise and aim to bounce back.

Under the stewardship of manager Justin Edinburgh, the O's were able to gain promotion back to the Football League at the end of the 2018-19 season, however the celebrations were short lived, as Edinburgh tragically lost his life on 8th June 2019.

In 2020, the West Stand at The Breyer Group Stadium was renamed the Justin Edinburgh Stand, in a moment of "enormous pride and excitement" for his family.

The Venue
Brisbane Road has been home to Leyton Orient since 1937, although opened in 1890 with amateur football club Leyton calling it their home prior. 34,345 attended to see Leyton Orient welcome West Ham United in the FA Cup in 1964, the highest attended the match at the stadium. Orient battled out a 1-1 draw but would later be defeated in the replay at the Boleyn. 

The ground has been host to international fixtures, with the Lionesses playing the USA in from 5900 in April 2011, winning the game 2-1. It has also hosted Ghana vs Zambia in 2009 and Jamaica vs Egypt in 2014. 

With a capacity of 9271, it has been an ideal home for Tottenham Hotspur’s reserves as well as England youth fixtures in the past. 

Head To Head
Leyton Orient achieved success over Barrow earlier in the season with goals on either side of the half from Smyth and El Minzouni extending Leyton Orients then unbeaten run, whilst they still find themselves now top of the tree in Sky Bet League Two

With both sides victorious last weekend this sets up for a potential cracker at Brisbane Road with The Bluebirds looking to bounce back from the defeat at SO Legal Stadium earlier in the season. 

The man with the whistle at Brisbane Road will be Leigh Doughty. He’ll be assisted by Craig Taylor and George Byrne; Carl Brook has been assigned to Fourth Official duties for Saturday’s fixture.

Doughty began refereeing in 2007 and was handed the play-off semi-final between Salford City and Eastleigh in the National League in 2018-19.

The Freckleton-based official, arrived in the EFL at the start of the 2019-20 season, following his promotion to the National List of Referees after just one campaign in the National League.

In what was only his second season in the EFL, Doughty was promoted to the Select Group Two group of match officials and was predominantly refereeing at the Championship level.

His first game in the EFL Championship was in September 2020, when he took charge of Rotherham United’s 1-nil defeat at home to Millwall.

Doughty’s last refereeing appointment came between Stoke City and Preston where Preston walked away with a 1-0  victory, Ched Evans scoring the only goal of the game in the last minute of the game to take all 3 points back to Lancaster.

Match Reports

Match Report: Leyton Orient 0-0 Barrow

14 January 2023

Barrow came away from Brisbane Road with a point to show for their efforts against a Leyton Orient side with the third best home record in English football.

The Bluebirds came into the match fresh off the back of a comeback win on the road at Mansfield Town last weekend, and showed an air of confidence with putting O's goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux under pressure in the opening stages.

Ben Whitfield's third minute cross caused a brief moment of panic for the Orient defence, as Adam Thompson had to skim the ball over his own bar for a Barrow corner.

Another ball into the box just three minutes later, again delivered by Whitfield, slipped through Vigouroux's hands, and Josh Gordon might've pounced on the rebound if not for strong defending from the Orient back line.

Billy Waters thought he'd broken the deadlock after 17 minutes, when his acrobatic effort found the back of the net from close range. However, the linesman raised his flag right away to chalk off what would've been Waters' 9th goal of the season.

Paul Farman was called into action, and pulled off an excellent save, when Paul Smyth broke clear one-on-one from the resulting free kick.

The 24th minute saw Josh Gordon break down the right flank, dart into the box and unleash a powerful shot at Vigouroux, who took two attempts to secure the ball away from danger.

Paul Farman wasn't troubled too much in the first half, but dealt with the few chances that were thrown his way, including palming away a stinging shot from Orient's Smyth just after the half hour mark.

The Barrow fans clearly felt aggrieved just before the interval, when Tyrell Warren appeared to be fouled inside the area, but play was waved on despite adamant appeals. The right back was close to heading in a rebounded ball, when he appeared to be held and brought down in the box.

The Bluebirds started the second half lively, and Josh Gordon would've broken clear if not for a skillful last ditch tackle.

The 53rd minute saw Ben Whitfield drive forward and drill a powerful shot goalwards, which was blocked out for a Barrow corner.

Ten minutes later, Paul Farman rushed out of his goal and threw his body at Paul Smyth's effort, with the Bluebirds keeper needing medical attention following the stop.

Orient had their best chance in the game come the 83rd minute, when Harry Smith rose the highest, but his headed effort was too high to find the back of the net.

Barrow perhaps looked the most likely to win it in the late stages. Orient's Tom James was shown two yellow cards in as little minutes, as he had to bring down Josh Gordon to stop the forward breaking clear.

The Bluebirds couldn't quite get that final touch to find a winner, but a point on the road against the league leaders leaves Barrow right in the playoff mix.
