Striker eager to start moving up the League One table.

Leyton Orient striker Chris Dagnall is keen to build on their first home league win of the season when they visit Bradford City on Saturday.

The O’s defeated Crewe 4-1 last weekend to move out of the League One relegation zone, with the 28-year-old netting for the second successive game.

And Dagnall hopes Orient can start to mount a push up the table.

“We need to start getting points on the board,” said Dagnall. “We don’t want a relegation fight all season long and we want to start pushing up the table.

“I hope the win over Crewe will be the start of something good.”

Dagnall certainly did his chances no harm last weekend, with a goal and three assists in the win over Crewe, but is keen to knuckle down and cement his spot in the O’s side.

He added: “I will keep my fingers crossed that I start against Bradford. You just don’t know, but we are going to have another good week of training and hopefully there will be more of the same.”
