History of the Leyton Orient v Huddersfield Town fixture

Huddersfield face a trip to Leyton Orient at Matchroom Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Terriers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in May 2009, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League One match.
