No team sheets yet
They are 9th on 28 points, we are 15th on 24 points. It's the sort of game that we've got to hope to win at Fortress Mem. Can we make it two on the bounce?
They've got Josh Wright, who I think is the brother of the bloke off TOWIE, and Demetriou and Cox who used to play for the O's (as, if memory serves, did Wright)
I think their manager is Phil Brown, a dour Scottish bloke, albeit one with a track record
Adam Barrett played for them for 100 years after leaving us, and became an unrecognisably better player there too. I think maybe Anwar Uddin went there too. Matty Harrold came to us after playing for them, and celebrated his nuts off when he scored against them at their place
So an unusually fact-free start to the match thread this week....
