WINS in Huddersfield have been like London buses for Leyton Orient – they waited 86 years for one, then two came along in succession.
And Town will be happy Adam Boyd is no longer with the Eastenders, because he’s done the damage early on in both the last meetings of the sides at the Galpharm.
Each time, the Hartlepool-born striker who is now back with his hometown club netted the game’s sole goal in only the second minute!
The capital club were known as Clapton Orient the first time they came to Huddersfield, going down 2-0 in 1910-11, Town’s inaugural Football League campaign.
There were 13 further defeats and 11 draws in the fixture before Orient finally claimed victory, with Town’s best victory by a 6-0 margin in 1982-83.
Town’s first-ever win at their current home, then known a the McAlpine, was 2-1 against Orient in 1994-95.
Tomorrow’s visitors were founded in 1881 as the football section of the Glyn Cricket Club, who drew many players from the Orient Shipping Line organisation.
