Leyton Orient v Sutton preview, travel and streaming – News

Sutton’s last game before Christmas sees a trip to East London to take on Sky Bet League Two leaders Leyton Orient, U . Sutton will play in Amber.

The East London side have been the pacesetters since the start of the season and are currently four points ahead of second-placed Stevenage with a game in hand and nine ahead of third-placed Northampton, whose games on Saturday have already been canceled although at Brisbane Road, where on Wednesday a WSL game was played between Tottenham and Everton no problems are expected.

Northampton are one of just two sides to have avoided defeat at Brisbane Road this season after a goalless draw in October, two weeks after Newport County’s 2-1 win. Orient’s only other loss of the season came at AFC Wimbledon, while they comfortably defeated Bradford City 3-0 at home in their last game.

U’s last visit of the season ended in a 3-1 loss at the Papa Johns Trophy, although it was Sutton who eventually qualified for the knockout rounds, while Orient last season after Isaac Olaofe put U’s ahead with came back in a 4-1 win . USA won once at Brisbane Road, Jonah Ayunga scoring the only goal of the game in September 2018, Orient’s first loss in a season that ended with them as champions.

The umpire that afternoon was Carl Brook and the Sussex official will also be at center on Saturday. He has been a familiar face to Sutton supporters since he first officiated a National League South game against Braintree in November 2007. He has been on the EFL list since 2020 and oversaw the 1-0 win at Wimbledon in October.

U’s welcomed Harry Beautyman back into action last week and he is available against his former club but Adam Lovatt is likely to remain out of action after suffering an injury in the Carlisle game.

Supporters should travel from Morden via the Northern Line Bank branch and change trains at Bank. Turn right out of the station and after passing Coronation Gardens on the left, turn down Buckingham Road to Boden. Upon reaching the site, turn right onto Brisbane Road to proceed to the correct turnstiles. Whilst there is a service from Sutton to Victoria on Saturdays with two trains per hour via Mitcham Junction and two trains per hour via West Croydon, there are no departures from Victoria after 17:30. Anyone traveling to Victoria can connect to the Central Line via the District Line at Mile End (where the platforms are adjacent) or the Victoria Line at Oxford Circus.

Fans driving will need to find the quickest route to the Blackwall Tunnel and once through the tunnel follow the A12 East Cross route to the junction with the A106 at Olympic Park, signposted Leyton, New Spitalfields Market and Westfield – there is also a ground signpost there. Ignore the former A106 signs for Dalston and Hackney. Continue on the A106 to Ruckholt Road and either turn left onto Oliver Road or continue to Leyton High Road before turning left.
