Brentford face a trip to Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 25 games played, Bees have recorded 7 wins, and Leyton Orient have come away with 11 victories.

Recent respective form guides

Leyton Orient's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While O's have scored 4, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Brentford is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the Bees have hit 6 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Leyton Orient are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 40 points from 34 matches.

Brentford's 47 points from 34 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
