Leyton Orient's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While O's have scored 8, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Preston North End's away form is none too clever either, tasting just one defeat in their last six, and picking up four good wins. The games have constituted a decent return of 13 goals for the North End, and 10 goals against.

Leyton Orient find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 10 games have yielded only 3 points.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the O's at home recently, and we can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the North End come away with an easy victory. Away win
