Leyton Orient captain Nathan Clarke is eyeing a repeat of their last visit to Oldham Athletic when they go in search of FA Cup first round glory on Saturday.

The O’s won 3-1 at Boundary Park back in August with goals from Kevin Lisbie, David Mooney and Darius Henderson securing their first three points of the season.

And while Orient remained unbeaten away from home up until the trip to Port Vale on October 26, they still sit perilously just above the League One relegation zone.

But they take a break from their league troubles this weekend with a trip to Greater Manchester and the 30-year-old hopes a victory will give the O’s a much-needed confidence boost.

“We go there on the back of the 3-1 win last time and that gives us confidence,” said Clarke.

“Any win that we can get at this time of the season will give us plenty of confidence.”

The O’s have been working under new manager Mauro Milanese for just over a week now, and Clarke feels there are already some promising signs after last weekend’s 2-2 home draw with Coventry City.

“Training has been a little bit longer and he wants to get his point across and rightly so,” he added.

“He’s come in with not much training time, he’s got to get his point across and the lads have responded well and training has been really good.

“You saw glimpses of what he was looking for out there against Coventry. We have got to stay positive, but we played really well last weekend. we have got to keep believing and believing in each other.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
