Manager Dean Saunders is looking for a positive reaction, after Wednesday night’s cup exit against Norwich City, at Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Admitting the Matchroom Stadium is a tough place to go, Dean is looking for his players to take some of the chances that they are creating and has revealed his side won’t allow Orient any time on the ball.

‘Saturday is going to be a tough game for us so we’ve got to make sure we are hard to beat,’ he said

‘My main criticism of the Norwich game is that we gave them too much room, but on Saturday we won’t give them an inch.

‘We’re away from home so we’ve got to not beat ourselves. If teams are going to beat us we’ve got to make them work and away from home we’ve got to be resolute - which we have been. 

‘We’ve got to take some of the chances we are creating, the reason why we are making so many chances is the type of football we are playing. 

‘We’ve got both full-backs joining in, the midfield players getting in the box as well as the two wingers and the strikers are attack minded so we’re creating chances but if you don’t bury them you will get caught with that many people going forward.

‘There’s different ways of winning a football match; passing the ball around teams is obviously the best way and is nice to watch, but if teams stop you have to match them and try and beat them a different way.’
