GETTING TO LEYTON ORIENT

29 January 2015

Here is the rough guide to Leyton Orient's Matchroom Stadium, where United will visit on Saturday.

Stadium name: The Matchroom Stadium
Capacity: 9,271
Postcode for Sat Nav: E10 5NF
Mileage: 175miles

BY CAR
Take the first exit onto the M181 towards Humber Bridge/Doncaster before entering the M180. Continue for 0.2 miles and then join the A1 in Coddington. At the roundabout take the third exit onto the A15. Stay on here for 20miles, taking the second exit at the next two roundabouts. At the subsequent roundabout you want to take the third exit onto the A46. Remain on the A46 for the next seven roundabouts/approximately 16miles before taking the 2nd exit onto the A1 ramp towards Grantham/Balderton. Merge onto the A1 and stay there for 57miles before following signs for A14/London. Continue on the A14 for 15miles and keep right to continue on the M11, again following signs for London. After approximately 50miles, take the A406 exit at junction 4 before merging onto the A406. Take the A104 exit towards Leytonstone/Woodford after 0.6 miles. Take the first exit onto Woodford New Road and continue for approximately one mile before using the second exit at the roundabout onto Lea Bridge Road. Turn left onto Leyton Green Road and then take the third left onto High Road Leyton/A112. Turn right onto Windsor Road before turning left onto Oliver Road. After a final left you will see The Matchroom Stadium.

BY TRAIN
Fans will most likely have to make three changes during the train journey from Scunthorpe to Stratford International; the nearest option of a possible train station to The Matchroom Stadium. You could get the 10:08 train from Scunthorpe to Doncaster, which is where you would catch the 10:55 to London Kings Cross, arriving at 12:43. A five minute walk is then needed to St Pancras station, which is where you will take a quick six minute train to Stratford International, which is approximately a 30 minute walk from the ground. Alternatively, you could get the 97 bus to the stadium.

PUBS AND GRUB
There is a supporters club at the ground that admits a small amount of visiting fans. Alternatively, some fans opt to go to the Coach & Horses which is no more than a five minute walk away. To get to the pub, which boasts Sky Sports TV, head north towards Windsor Road before turning left onto Oliver Road. If you are looking for a quick bite to eat you could try the Unity Kitchen Café, which is ideal for brunches and breakfasts. You could also go to the Westfield Shopping Centre, which offers plenty of food and drink options and is one tube stop away. On the other hand, there are various pubs dotted about near the stadium which serve food, one of which being The Northcote, which is within a ten minute walk of The Matchroom Stadium.

WHAT TO EXPECT
The Leyton Orient official programme is sold at £3. Away supporters are housed in the East Stand, which is the oldest of the four parts of the ground. Visiting fans occupy the south side of the stand. The total amount of opposition supporters allowed in the Matchroom Stadium is just under 1,500.
