Dan discussed Leyton Orient’s 1-0 defeat at Port Vale, while Jacob joined in to assess their 1-1 draw with Northampton Town and the chaos that ensued after Josh Wright’s late equaliser, which saw a 17-man brawl take place.
They face a clash with Newport County on Saturday, with Dan looking ahead to a big game for the O’s.
He then moved on to look at James Dobson’s loan move away from Dagenham & Redbridge and previewed Daryl McMahon’s first league game against Notts County on Saturday.
