Leyton Orient look a decent price to defeat Rotherham United and clinch a place in the Championship.

Despite finishing third, the O’s are considered outsiders and available at 21/10 with William Hill to win the match.

The Millers are clear favourites for the Wembley final and the best price you can get on Steve Evans’ side is 7/5 with Paddy Power.

If you want the safety net of extra-time and penalties, the O’s are available at 11/10 to win promotion while Rotherham are 8/11 with Ladbrokes. Orient drew 0-0 twice with Rotherham in the Division Three semi-finals back in 1999 and if you expect another repeat then the draw is on offer at 12/5 with Paddy Power.

The O’s won that tie on penalties and you can back the same outcome at 10/1 with William Hill this weekend.

Two players that have helped Orient’s promotion charge this season, Dean Cox and Moses Odubajo, look likely candidates for Wembley glory.

Cox has netted 16 goals this season while Odubajo scored one of his 11 against the Millers back in February.

You can back Cox to get on the scoresheet anytime at 10/3 and Odubajo at 4/1 with Ladbrokes with both looking generously priced.

The finalists have been a lot stronger offensively this season with the O’s scoring 85 goals in their 46 league games and the Millers netting 86. Another bet worth considering is Orient to win with both teams to score at 5/1 with Coral.
