O’s manager happy with preparation ahead of ‘very important’ game.

Leyton Orient manager Mauro Milanese knows the importance of picking up his first league win at Brisbane Road when they face fellow strugglers Crewe Alexandra tomorrow.

The O’s did end their long wait for a home win when seeing off Northampton Town 2-0 in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

And Milanese hopes that can be the start of a good home run as they look to move out of the relegation zone.

“It is a very important game and I feel we have prepared very well,” said Milanese.

“It’s a game we need to win to climb up the table. It’s not nice being in the relegation zone.

“It is a long season but the lads are ready to react. Nobody was happy after conceding so late on at Gillingham.”

The O’s created a number of chances at Gillingham last weekend, but Milanese was disappointed with the manner of their three goals, which all came from set pieces.

And the Italian admits they need to be better in both boxes if results are to improve.

“We were disappointed about the three goals we conceded from the set pieces with the two free-kicks from such a distance away and with 10 men behind the ball,” he added.

“One point may have not changed too much in the table but it would have given more satisfaction to everybody

“I see the performances and we are creating chances. We need to be a bit more clinical and more switched on at the back.”
