Leyton Orient Women will play their second game in 48 hours when they travel to face Haringey Borough in the FA Women’s Premier League on Tuesday night.
The O’s come into the match having won 2-0 against Denham United on Sunday.
First half goals from Belen Ripoll Douton and top scorer, Sophie Le Marchand were enough to seal all three points for the O’s. They now sit in third place with 19 points.
Orient have been on the road for their previous three matches, and don’t return home to Mile End until November 19th with two more away games to play before then.
Haringey have endured a difficult start to the season, having lost all eight of their league matches to date. They sit bottom of the division with no points from a possible 24, and a goal difference of -57.
On Sunday, they entertained Cambridge United at Coles Park with the U’s running out 7-0 winners.
Ones to Watch
Orient left back Leyre Bastyr has shown consistency and capability in equal measure this season. She has made 13 starts for the O’s across league and cup competition, and scored twice in the last three matches. Bastyr provides pace and threat in attack, with strength and stability in defence.
Midfielder Chloe McNee has made an immediate impact since coming into the squad for the O’s 2-0 victory against Ipswich Town on September 17th. McNee has made five starts for the club since then, scoring three goals and three assists during that time. Primarily she has played just behind the striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation, showing creativity and goal scoring ability.
For Haringey, Julia Carruthers has scored four of the eight goals Borough have scored this season. She will be hoping to add to her personal tally as her team look for their first points of the campaign.

Points of View
After the O’s 2-0 victory against Denham United on Sunday, midfielder Egle Trezzi spoke to Rising East about what she expects from Haringey on Tuesday: “I respect them. I think they have a couple of players who are really good. We are looking to just enjoy the game, and maybe practice things that we can sharpen up on. We want to get the result, get as many goals as we can, not concede and work for those three points that are still vital in the league which is something we are really focused on at the moment.”
Trezzi talked about the benefits of playing two games in quick succession saying: “I’m happy for the turnover. I’m sure Chris will want to try different players or give chances to players that don’t usually play 90 minutes. I am happy to play as much as I can, but if he wants to try different players in my position then that’s fine. I think it is good to keep morale up. After the defeat at Cardiff, a long journey, I think we need a couple of games where we just show that we are still up for it.”
KO is Tuesday 7th November at 19:45.
