Bet on Droylsden vs Orient – Home side 4/1 to make amends
Droylsden will be keen to banish the memory of unfortunately missing out on appearing in the third round of the FA Cup in 2008 by upsetting Leyton Orient.
Two years ago Droylsen shocked Chesterfield to reach the third round, but they were then chucked out of the competition for fielding the suspended Sean Newton, who scored both goals in a 2-1 win.
Manager Dave Pace has no such troubles this time as he has no suspensions in his squad, while injuries are also at a minimum.
Motivated to make amends for their previous trauma, Droylsden could be a big price at 4/1 to beat Leyton Orient and become the third non-league team to secure their place in the third round of the FA Cup.
Furthermore, Droylsden’s home record in the Conference North this season has been relatively strong, winning six of their eight games.
They have also scored 21 goals in the process, making them the highest home scorers in the division.
Although Leyton Orient are playing at a level two tiers higher, their away form has been less than impressive this season.
They have won just once on the road in their ten games and are 4/6 to beat Droylsden.
Droylsden may come into the game having lost three of their last four games, but they have proved fairly good at keeping clean sheets in recent times.
They have shut out the opposition in five of their last nine games and extending this run will be pivotal if they are to progress past Orient.
The game is likely to be cagey for the most part and the 1-0 Droylsden win may be overpriced at 9/1.
Meanwhile, 1-1 seems the most logical choice at 11/2, although the most likely to return a profit could be the 5/4 on offer that the game has two goals or fewer scored.
A £10 bet on Droylsen winning 1-0 could potentially secure a return of £90. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
