Italian also reveals his knowledge of League One following his appointment at Brisbane Road on Monday

New Leyton Orient boss Fabio Liverani admits he would love nothing more than to start his time at the club with a win over Peterborough United tomorrow.

The 38-year-old signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the club on Monday to become their fourth manager in the space of five months.

And while the Italian admits points are a necessity, he would love his first success to come at Brisbane Road.

“It would mean a lot to win my first game because it is not only three points it is my first game at home as well.

“We need to win for the table and it would be nice to win in front of the home supporters.”

As soon as the former Genoa coach was made aware of interest from Leyton Orient just over a week ago, he has been swatting up on League One football via a football scouting and analysis company called Wyscout.

And Liverani feels having had that background knowledge on Leyton Orient will be beneficial for him as he tries to settle in.

“From the moment that Leyton Orient offered him the job I watched League One games on Wyscout as much as possible, especially the Leyton Orient games to gain knowledge about the Leyton Orient players plus the league in general,” he added.

“The information I got from Wyscout was at the beginning and that made the next stage better for me. From the moment I was offered I watched League One.”

Peterborough come into the game without a league win in their last six games, but have hoped fortunes would improve with the loan returns of Craig Mackail-Smith and Aaron McLean – who helped Posh to three promotions under current boss Darren Ferguson between 2007 and 2011.

And Liverani knows they have plenty of firepower up front for the O’s to be wary of tomorrow.

“I saw 2-3 games of Peterborough and I saw quality up front,” he remarked.

“They move and attack the space a lot so they look dangerous but it is game we are confident we can win.”
