Matts up on twitter saying Nicky Ajose has picked up a knee injury so he won't be available for the next two games not that we have needed him at the moment, I do think though that he will come good and come the end of the season he could be vital to our success. Also out is Gary Warren Lee Holmes and Nigel A.

Leyton Orient promoted last season have had an indifferent start to the season so far, winning two (home to Cheltenham and away to Mansfield) drawing two (home to Stevenage and away to Salford) and losing three (Macclesfield Crawley and Swindon). They have scored eight goals in the league and let in 12. Their most remarkable result of the season to date has to be the away victory over Mansfield where they were 2-0 down at half time and won it 3-2, so they are nobodies fools.

We also have the p[otential of the Manager of the month curse hanging over us (know tomorrow), but I think we will be too strong for them and despite losing the threat of Ajose coming of the bench to score a hatrick I think it will be another three to the reds, Bowman Moxey and Martin, final score 3-1 crowd of 4856 with 459 making their way from the smoke to take in some fresh Devon air. That said We are Exeter and have a habit of not making things easy for ourselves

A quick reminder of the last time we played them

2-1 to City in front of 5002. 2-0 up, they get one back and we hang on for dear life. Aaron Martin to get another and one from Bowman. Well, that’s what I’d like anyway.

Seems to be a lot of confidence on here about the result. Leyton Orient are still finding their feet in League 2 but I think they still have the makings of a decent team and we are surely due a disappointing performance and a bad result.

We're doomed. Doomed I tell you. Cursed by that MOTM we'll thrash them all over the park but fail to score. Then they'll spawn the jammiest winner ever in the 89th.

It is written.

I wonder when Atangana and Holmes will be available for selection if ever? This always getting back to match fitness business seems to go on forever with some players. Hope to goodness they don’t go missing again too when the pitches get heavier after finally getting fit , injured again when we need them.Guess this is why Atangana was released by Cheltenham.And what’s with Ajose? Out , and he’s not even playing. Maybe our squad availability isn’t so deep after all.Hope this doesn’t come back to haunt us , we can’t always rely on the same old faithfuls like Law and Martin brilliant though they are.

I reckon we will carry the momentum onwards. Orient have been no great shakes so far. As long as we focus we ought to win comfortably. 3-0 Bowman and Taylor with 2, 4,500

Holmes is the most disappointing for me. We knew Atangana would be out for the first 10 games but where the f'k is Holmes. He picked up a niggle pre season ffs. What niggle takes 8 weeks to recover from? He'll come back, take a few games to find his fitness and form, and then he'll be out for another 3 months with very little mention of the injury.
