Both Leyton Orient and AFC Wimbledon enter Tuesday's EFL Trophy clash off the back of weekend defeats in their respective divisions. However, Glyn Hodges lead Group G after two games with a perfect record, while this week's hosts sit second – but have only played once.

It'll be interesting to see who prevails, but Orient haven't been helped by positive coronavirus tests causing successive matches to be cancelled last week. Wimbledon will back themselves to make it three from three, but that could prove easier said than done against League Two opposition eager to make up for lost time.

Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Leyton Orient vs AFC Wimbledon Betting Tips

Wimbledon scored first through Ryan Longman, but a quick-fire double on the stroke of half-time saw them succumb to defeat by Accrington Stanley on Saturday. It's their first defeat since a 5-0 thrashing by Oxford United in mid-February – a seven-game unbeaten streak ended this weekend.

If they want to have a smoother run in England's third-tier this term, they need consistency and cannot afford one defeat to spiral into a five-game losing run. The first test of their mettle comes in midweek, albeit an EFL Trophy clash that they'll quietly back themselves to win – regardless of who is playing at Matchroom Stadium.

They're playing Orient, a division below in League Two, who were also beaten at the weekend. Second best against Cheltenham Town, Ross Embleton's side suffered a 2-0 defeat – their first competitive loss since, you guessed it, Cheltenham in February.

Rotation is in order for both sides, so watch out for players like Orient duo Conor Wilkinson and Jordan Maguire-Drew to start. The latter excelled during their Southern Group G 3-2 win over Brighton under-21s last month, while Wilkinson came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner.

Likewise for Wimbledon, teenage forward Zach Robinson (18) scored during an impressive showing against Brighton last Tuesday. He'll relish creating havoc again here.

Leyton Orient vs AFC Wimbledon Correct Score Predictions

This is likely to be a closely-contested affair after weekend defeats. I'm backing Wimbledon though, given their justified faith in blossoming prospects.
