‘Have a chance’ – Leyton Orient vs Port Vale prediction: The72

The72’s writers offer their Leyton Orient vs Port Vale prediction ahead of the League One clash on Tuesday.

Leyton Orient were beaten 1-0 away at Wigan Athletic in their last League One outing. Midfielder Ethan Galbraith was sent off at the DW Stadium.

The O’s are currently sat in 10th place in the table. They are seven points off the play-offs with nine games left of the season to play.

As for Port Vale, they are in a relegation battle. Darren Moore’s men are 23rd and only Carlisle United separate them from the bottom.

The Valiants are seven points from safety but have games in hand on teams around them. They lost 2-1 at home to Shrewsbury Town last time out.

Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…

Harry Mail

Leyton Orient have lost their last two games in a row against Bristol Rovers and Wigan Athletic and will be keen to bounce back with a win here.

The O’s still have a chance of reaching the play-offs this season if they can hit some form again between now and the end of the campaign. They will see Port Vale as a team they should beat.

The visitors are struggling for results and haven’t won in 2024 in a run of fixtures spanning back 12 games now. They are looking likely to drop down into League Two unless they turn their fortunes around quick.

“I can’t see Port Vale getting anything against Richie Wellens’ side.”

Leyton Orient have seen their late charge slowed with back-to-back defeats, which is a bit of a shame given just how strong they were looking. Nonetheless, they can be really proud of their season.

“That said though, I think they’ll claim a win here to keep themselves on the fringes of the chasing pack.

Port Vale look destined for the drop with Darren Moore unable to turn around their fortunes. They’ve got games in hand to make up but in this form, I don’t see a great escape coming from them and a defeat here will only deepen their woes.”
