A first league meeting between both clubs since 2009.

We've struggled a bit in the last three league games against the stronger sides in this league.

Northampton have a decent team on paper, but I don't like betting on them as they seem to blow hot and cold.

All ticket for away fans, don't think we'll sell it out. Expecting 600-800 to turn up.

In terms of the team, time to give Ollie Palmer a start up front I think as McCallums form has tailed off and maybe going 4-4-2 from the off with Blair Turgott starting on the right wing.

Expecting lots of goals in this one. Orients starting XI is obviously very good at this level but I'm confident of us scoring against anyone. Just hope we start well, want to avoid a negative atmosphere with all the problems off the field.

Would of been harsh on orient to lose that who were the better team throughout. Fortunately for us adam smith is a football genius! Had of one of those games whereby he looked invincible.. Again! Fair play to dean cox that was a great free kick, couldn't believe the ref gave the free kick orients way though! But in all honesty they should of won the game.

Happy enough with a point though. Orient clearly a good team for this level. Injuries are crippling us now though. Buchanan going off today. That's him, cresswell, Holmes, Maloney, Taylor, Macdonald, corry, horwood etc that are out. Need to battle through!

Can't we just give the council adam smith and call it quits?!

Bugger, hoped Dick Turpin`s goal would thieve us three points but one will do,
Was never a free kick but it was the least Orient deserved

Annoying because we should've won the game, we played well second half. I know Northampton had injuries but they still had a decent enough side out.

Adam Smith clearly MOTM, we had enough chances second half and we should've won the game but thats the way it goes. Free kick did look a soft one I must admit, still a great free kick from Cox and not the first time he's done that. Northamptons CBs did very well in the end considering I thought.

We've now put a bit of pressure on ourselves to win our home games.

I'd have preferred the 0-0 if I'm honest as we don't keep enough clean cheets and haven't kept one away from home this season.

Adam Smith is the best keeper in the division. End of.
