TEAM TALK v LEYTON ORIENT, 23/8/14

21 August 2014

Boss looks ahead to Capital trip...

TUESDAY'S home defeat at the hands of Yeovil Town was disappointing. Our visitors manged to score two goals from just three opportunities that they created all evening, whilst we were unable to convert the chances that came our way, particularly during the opening period.

We know that we have to be more clinical, but as long as we are getting into the positions, I am confident that the goals will come.

We've been playing some good football and creating opportunities in these opening games, so there is plenty for us to be positive about.

It's always important to do the basics right; the players are progressing and this wil help us move in the direction that we want to be going in.

I have every faith in the quality and ability that we have within our ranks here and with a number of key players still to return from injury, we have some good options all over the field.

The younger members of the group have also stepped up to the plate, with the likes of Liam Kinsella really making their mark in these early weeks of the campaign.

Having served Leyton Orient as a player and coach, they are a club close to my heart. They have invested heavily in their squad over the summer and allied to the players that took them close to promotion last season, they will be a tough proposition for us.

That said. we deserved to beat them a couple of times last year in three tight games and we are looking forward to this latest challenge.

They will feel that they have a better equipped squad this season, but at the same time, we know that we can be competitive against anyone in this League.

We are looking forward to the game and I would like to thank those supporters who will be making the trip to cheer us on.
