In preparation for their upcoming League Two campaign, Leyton Orient will host West Bromwich Albion at the Estadio Municipal de Lagos on Monday in a friendly clash between the two teams.

Leyton Orient secured a modest mid-table finish in the league last season after winning just 14 of their 46 games. They ended the season with 58 points, finishing 19 points behind the playoff spots and 20 above the drop zone.

The O's have now picked up mid-table finishes in their last two seasons and will be looking to put out a stronger showing next season and push for League One football after a seven-season hiatus. They have already begun their preseason campaign by beating Haringey Borough 2-1 and will be hoping for similar luck here.

West Bromwich Albion fell short of their promotion ambitions last season, suffering a capitulating drop of form in the second half of the season. Veteran manager Steve Bruce was appointed in February but could do very little, winning just six of his 17 games in charge and leading the Baggies to a 10th-place finish.

Monday's game will signal the beginning of West Bromwich Albion's preseason campaign with games against Stevenage and Northampton Town scheduled as well.
