BRADFORD City moved back into the League Two play-offs with their 1-0 home win over Newport County last weekend, and they will fancy their chances of climbing a couple more places on their next away day.

They visit Leyton Orient tomorrow, with the Londoners in the midst of an awful run of form. They have not won in the league since they thrashed Grimsby Town 4-0 on October 19 and even suffered a humiliating FA Cup First Round home defeat to Isthmian League North side Maldon & Tiptree.

They have slipped all they way down to 19th in the league after two months without a victory.

Gary Bowyer's men have been shaky on the road in recent weeks though, losing 2-1 at Plymouth Argyle and having to settle for a disappointing 1-1 draw at 10-man Macclesfield Town seven days later.

Hopefully this is a more pleasurable away trip for the men from West Yorkshire, with a win giving City the chance to go as high as second.

As always, the support of the travelling Bantams fans will be crucial, so here is the T&A's comprehensive away day guide for Leyton Orient.


Venue: Breyer Group Stadium (Brisbane Road)

Capacity: 9,271

Address: Brisbane Road, Leyton, London, E10 5NF

The main concern for the big day is how to get there, how long it will take to get there, and where on earth you’re going to park.

Train: Not too difficult this one. Catch a train to Leeds from Bradford Interchange then hop on an LNER service from there to London Kings Cross.

It is couple of minutes walk from there to King's Cross St Pancras Underground Station, and then you need to take the Metropolitan line to Liverpool Street.

That will take around seven minutes. At Liverpool Street, you'll need to change on to the Central line, where it is just four stops from there to Leyton.

After getting off at Leyton, it takes around 10 minutes to walk to the ground. Head north on High Road Leyton, passing Pizza Hut, KFC and Sainsbury's, turn left on to Buckingham Round, right on to Brisbane Road, and you're there.

Car: Once out of Bradford, head down the M62, before coming off at Junction 32A, exiting on to the A1.

Continue on there for around 115 miles, before taking the ramp on to the A14.

Keep right to continue on to the M11, and follow signs for London.

After around 50 miles on there, you will reach Junction 4, take the A406 (W) exit on the right to A503/A10/A1/North Circular

Merge onto North Circular Road/A406 then take the Leytonstone/Woodford/A104/Walthamstow/A503 exit.

At the roundabout, take the first exit onto Woodford New Road/A104 and continue to follow the A104. After just under two miles, turn left onto Leyton Green Road/B159.

Take a slight left onto High Road Leyton/A112, before turning right onto Windsor Road and finally turning left onto Brisbane Road. Your destination will be on the right*.

*Please note that although this takes you to the stadium itself, there is no public parking available. There is some in the immediate area around the stadium, although it is extremely limited.


In addition to the above, many surrounding roads are for permit holders only and there are limited parking options elsewhere.

If you do intend to drive to the match, please take care to avoid penalty fines when parking by reading signage and by not blocking local residents.

If you are unsure about the available street parking, there is also the option of renting a private driveway near in the local area via


There is a supporters club at the ground that does admit small numbers of visiting supporters at a cost of £1.

The supporters club is located in the new West Stand and is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

It is very popular with fans but is a relatively small club (around 200 capacity), so if you don't arrive there early, then you may find that it is already full.

Otherwise, along Leyton High Road towards Leyton Tube Station is the Leyton Technical pub. Housed in the old Leyton Town Hall, it is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and has up to eight real ales on offer as well as real ciders. It also serves food.

There are also plenty of fast food outlets dotted along the High Road.

One previous visiting fan recommends the Northcote Arms on Grove Green Road. They have Sky and it is only a ten-minute walk from the ground.

To find the pub, turn right out of Leyton tube station and then right again into Grove Green Road. The pub is at the bottom of the hill by the first main junction of traffic lights. It is also listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

Several other away supporters recommend the Birkbeck Tavern in Langthorne Road, behind the tube station.

It is quite an old-fashioned pub, one that appears to have changed little over the last few decades.

Four high-quality real ales were on offer, which are all on rotation apart from the regular Rita's Special. Apparently, this is a Courage Beer named by the pub after a former landlady.

Please note that alcohol is not on sale inside the ground to visiting supporters.

Q: Leyton Orient have just been promoted to League Two after spending two years in the National League. Yet it was only five years ago that they reached the League One play-off final, blowing a two-goal lead before losing on penalties.

Who beat them on that fateful day in May 2014 to earn promotion to the Championship instead?
