Swansea City vs. Leyton Orient

The Liberty Stadium

Swansea Vs Leyton Orient

Over the last few days the gloss has been taken off of the club’s championship promotion season by the ongoing proceedings in the Leeds United arbitration case.

Staff , Players and fans alike were left bitterly disappointed following the football league’s decision to award the league one trophy to the club on Saturday. After consulting legal advice the governing body of league football made the unpopular decision and in a statement outlined the reason behind their decision.” 'Following legal advice, the Football League can confirm that it will not present the League One trophy to Swansea City at their match with Leyton Orient due to the ongoing arbitration hearing involving Leeds United.”

It has overshadowed the end of such a successful season for the club and has brought the game into disrepute in the process. Roberto Martinez will be looking to put it beyond all reasonable doubt this weekend as Leyton Orient pay visit to the Liberty Stadium. Martin Ling’s side were up until a few weeks ago were pushing for a play off spot but in that time have seen their form significantly dip. Orient fans will have to go back to the 15th March to find their side’s last win and with 5 losses in 6 games the form book does not read well for the Match room Stadium outfit. The O’s did manage to net a shock point against a Doncaster Rovers side looking to secure automatic promotion.


In comparison Swansea City’s home form in recent games has been under close scrutiny with two, 2-1 losses back to back against strugglers AFC Bournemouth and Yeovil Town. Fans will be hoping that the squad can sign off on a high at home this season with a win.

Vital Quotes:

Orient Defender Adam Chambers:

''We don't want to become part of any party by letting them stick four or five past us again. They are the champions, but that makes us want to go there and show what we can do and put the record straight after they beat us so convincingly earlier in the season..'


Leyton Orient Manager Martin Ling:

""I'm sure it will be party time, although they have lost their last two at home. As a manager it's painful to lose a game 5-0 at home, so it would be good to gain a spot of revenge

Swansea City Team News:

Ferrie Bodde is the only injury concern for Swansea City as he looks to try and feature before the season comes to a close next Saturday.

Darren Pratley is suspended following his red card against Yeovil Town last weekend.

Player to watch: Paul Anderson

The Loan Star:

Anderson has been a revelation since joining from Liverpool on loan for the season. Efforts are being made to secure the teenager for another season weather it is on a permanent deal or on another season long loan. Over the season the winger has been in fine form and his ability to unlock defences has been pivotal to Swansea City’s season.

Beset by a hamstring injury that has seen him miss a large chunk of the run it Anderson will be looking to finish off the season off in style.

Player to watch: Adam Boyd

Orient’s Steam Train

Despite the poor recent run of form Orient’s leading goal scorer Adam Boyd will be a threat up front. With 16 goals in all competitions this season the former Luton Town player could be the key to orient. Garry Monk and Ashley Williams will have to be alert.
