AFC Fylde vs Leyton Orient Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Reason For AFC Fylde vs Leyton Orient Betting Tips

They may have failed to reach the Football League, as they fell at the final hurdle, losing the play-off final to the Non-League financial powerhouse that is Salford City, but it’s been a fantastic campaign for AFC Fylde, who’ve only been in the National League for two seasons. To reach both the play-off final and the FA Trophy final after playing at this level for just two years is an impressive achievement, an achievement that all involved with at the Lancashire club should be proud of.

Leyton Orient, who returned to the Football League at the second time of asking by winning the National League just a few weeks ago, have also had an excellent season. They’re back in the full-time professional game whatever happens on Sunday but winning the FA Trophy at Wembley would be the perfect way for Justin Edinburgh’s men to round off what has been a pleasing campaign.

It’s no surprise that this pair have reached the final of this competition; Fylde and Orient were just about the two toughest teams to beat in the National League this season, as they finished the campaign ranked 1st and second in terms of both defeats and goals conceded.

Considering that Leyton Orient beat Fylde both home and away in the league this season, they deserve to come into this game as favourites, though punters shouldn’t necessarily be led by the two league results.

However, the fact that Orient scored five goals in two games against Fylde this season is pretty damning for the Lancashire side, as is the fact that they only replied with one goal in over 180 minutes of football. In truth, when the pair recently met at Brisbane Road, Leyton Orient outclassed their opponents, scoring two goals and conceding none in the process. The fact that the Londoners clocked 2.03 expected goals for and conceded just 0.64 also suggests that there’s a gap in quality that favours Justin Edinburgh’s men.

If we consider both the fact that Fylde struggled to cope when the pair met recently and the fact that Dave Challinor’s men lost against Salford in the play-off final last weekend, it’s easy to feel that Orient, who either topped the National League rankings or bettered Fylde in areas such as expected goals for, expected goals against, shots against and touches inside the box, are the team to side with at the prices.

In addition to backing Orient to round the season off with victory at Wembley, ‘Leyton Orient to Score Over 1.5 Goals’ also catches the eye. Fylde are no mugs defensively, though they have tended to come up short against the better teams this season. They conceded at least twice both home and away against Leyton Orient, while they also shipped two or more against Salford, both during the season and in the play-off final.

Head to Head

Leyton Orient have a pleasing recent record against AFC Fylde. When the teams met for the first time ever last season, Fylde won by two goals to one, though Orient have since won three on the bounce against Sunday’s opponents. When the pair met around seven weeks ago, Orient won by two goals to nil at Brisbane Road.

AFC Fylde Team News

AFC Fylde Team Badge AFC Fylde boss Dave Challinor could name the same side that featured at this venue a week ago, though if he decides to shake things up, the likes of James Hardy and Nick Haughton could start.
