First time: Bob Jack’s Argyle beat Clapton Orient 3-0 in the Third Division South on Saturday, December 28, 1929. Sammy Black (2) and Jack Vidler scored the goals for an Argyle team that were heading for their first ever EFL promotion.

Last time: Derek Adams’ men lost 2-3 at home to the O’s in a League Two fixture on Tuesday, February 14, 2017. There wasn’t much love in the air as Argyle threw away a 2-1 lead with just two minutes of normal time remaining. Antoni Sarcevic and Matty Kennedy scored our goals. Orient went on to finish bottom of table and were relegated to the National League. Argyle finished second on goal difference behind Portsmouth and were promoted to League One.

Biggest win: Kevin Hodges’ team beat the East Londoners 5-0 on Saturday, October 2, 1999 in Division 3. Chris Leadbitter (2), Chris Hargreaves and Sean McCarthy (2) were our goal scorers. This is the only previous time that we have faced the O’s in an EFL match at Home Park in October.

Heaviest defeat: Orient beat Peter Reid’s Pilgrims 4-1 on the last day of the 2010-11 season, Saturday, May 7, 2011. Yannick Bolasie scored in his final appearance for Argyle as a miserable season, which had seen the club entering administration, receiving a ten point deduction and suffering relegation from League One, came to a close.

Most goals in a single game: The highest aggregate score in this fixture is six in a 4-2 win for Leyton Orient in Division 3 on Saturday, November 28, 1998. Kevin Hodges’ Argyle’s goals came from Simon Collins and an own goal from O’s defender Matthew Joseph.

Further interesting facts: Orient lost in each of their first six EFL visits to Home Park and it took thirteen attempts for them to record their first victory. Conversely, in their last eight visits to the Theatre of Greens the O’s have won four times and drawn twice, scoring 14 and conceding 15 in the process.

We have never drawn 0-0 at home to Orient in the EFL. Indeed, the East Londoners have only ever kept one clean sheet at Home Park, in a 1-0 victory on Saturday, August 12, 2000.
