SWINDON Town first-team coach Tommy Wright expects attacking play to be at the forefront of both sides’ thinking when they travel to Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Only Grimsby Town’s tally of 13 goals is higher than Swindon’s haul of 11 in the league over the opening six games of the season, while the Os will bring up double figures themselves should they notch this weekend.

The scouting conducted by Swindon boss Richie Wellens and his staff of Orient’s tactics has revealed that manager Ross Embleton, who is a former first-team coach at the Energy Check County Ground, has deployed a front-foot approach in fixtures so far this term.

That continues the philosophy that led Orient to promotion back to the EFL as National League champions under Justin Edinburgh, who tragically died over the summer, last season.

Orient have made a solid start to life back as a Football League side, recording two wins and eight points so far.

Wright does not foresee the Londoners having to fret about relegation back to non-league come May, and sees no reason why they would sit back against Town when the two meet at Brisbane Road tomorrow.

“From what I have seen so far, they are a very attacking team.” said Wright, who joined boss Wellens’ backroom team at SN1 over the summer.

“They do go for it, so I wouldn’t put my money on it being 0-0 if I was a betting man.

“They have come up and they are a club with great traditions.

“It is sad what happened with Justin and maybe that will give them a spur to keep going.

“I am pretty sure they won’t be in danger of fighting relegation, I think they will be one of the teams up there.

“They have got players who are capable of scoring goals, as we do, so I think it will be an entertaining game.”

Town have no new injury concerns ahead of the trip to Orient, although Zeki Fryers is set to miss a third League Two game in succession.

The match at Brisbane Road is likely too soon for the left-back to return but Wright reported that he has returned to training this week.

“Zeki did a bit of training on Wednesday – a bit of running. That is good news,” said Wright.

“He looks like he could have a chance for the weekend. It’s maybe a bit early, but he has improved and it shouldn’t be too long for him.”

The Town supporters will travel in their numbers to Brisbane Road, with more than 1,000 following the team for their third away game in succession in League Two.

Although he only joined the staff at Swindon this summer, Wright was always aware that the club could count on a loyal following.

“I am not taken aback because I have been here as an opposing coach and I have played against Swindon as a player, so I know they have got good support,” said Wright.

“I think the supporters are enjoying it. I think they can see we are flourishing and we are trying to go forward in the right way.

“The tradition of Swindon has always been to play good, entertaining football.

“Hopefully we can keep that going.”
