Posh v Leyton Orient: Match Preview

6 March 2015

Peterborough United host Leyton Orient at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday 7th March (3pm).

Caretaker manager Dave Robertson goes in search of his third victory in a row on Saturday as Leyton Orient visit the ABAX Stadium in Sky Bet League One action.

'Confident but not complacent' has been the message from Robertson in the build-up to this match as Posh look to build on victories over Bradford City and Sheffield United this week.

Marcus Maddison is set to return to the squad after recovering from injury, but Jermaine Anderson and Jack Baldwin are out due to injury. Anderson underwent an operation on his toe on Thursday.

'Leyton Orient are a good side and I personally think they are in a false position in the table, but our preparation will not change, we go into the game confident but not complacent. We will be focussing on what we can do and how we can influence the game.

'It has been a good couple week, but we are focussed on the next challenge. It is about taking each game as it comes. We are not looking too far ahead. We are together as a club from the coaching staff to the players and from the players to the supporters.

'The fans have been magnificent in the last two games and I thank them for that backing. We ask for it again on Saturday at the ABAX Stadium,' Robertson said.

Orient were beaten 3-1 by Bristol City in their last fixture, but prior to that defeat they had won three out of five games to put them in a position to move away from the relegation zone after a troubled campaign.

The visitors are set to be backed by over 500 supporters at the ABAX Stadium and pre-sales have been encouraging in home areas of the stadium.

Fans are urged to purchase in advance with savings to be made. Tickets are available at www.theposhtickets.com, via the Ticketmaster hotline 0844 847 1934 and in person at the Box Office.
