The Reds come into the game after two successive home games and will be looking to continue their away form that has started picking up recently.

They’ll be up against a Leyton Orient side who won’t be with their fans as they have been placed into Tier 3 restrictions. However, Orient have started the season well and find themselves in a good position.

Striker Danny Johnson has been the key to Orient’s good start, with 11 league goals to his name prior to Tuesday’s fixtures. Leyton Orient have been similar to Crawley this season, in that they have had a lot of goals involved in their games.

Orient have played some good attacking football and look a much better side than they were last season. They’ve been in good form recently, winning plenty of games and boosting themselves up the table consequently. Ross Embleton has got his side playing good football and they will be looking to keep up a play-off push throughout the season.

They’re a similar team to Crawley and both teams will be hoping to stay at the top end of the table and not slip down into mid table or the bottom half. A game between two similar teams should set up for a close game but football can throw up some strange situations and both teams will have to put in a good performance or could easily see defeat.

With two good goal scoring teams on the pitch, you’d also expect there to be plenty of goals with two of the league’s top scorers in Max Watters and Danny Johnson being on the pitch. We should see an entertaining encounter but it will be a shame to have to see it from on a TV and not attending the game.
