Leyton Orient manager Mauro Milanese is hungry for the O’s to secure their passage into the area semi-final of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy with victory over Northampton Town tomorrow night.

Milanese saw his side fall at the first hurdle in the FA Cup on Saturday in their 1-0 loss to Oldham Athletic, but is keen for O’s to progress into the latter stages of the Trophy.

“I ask for us to be professional. It is another game and we want to progress to the next round,” said Milanese.

“The FA Cup is a very affectionate competition but it is hard to go forward, but it is something we can do in the JPT. We are hungry to win the game.

Jobi McAnuff missed Saturday’s trip to Oldham due to concussion, and is now unavailable for the O’s next two games after being called up for international duty with Jamaica for their Caribbean Cup campaign.

Adam Legzdins was back in the matchday squad against the Latics after missing two months with a finger injury, and could get his chance against the Cobblers.

Gary Sawyer may also be included for his first start since the 1-0 win over Aston Villa in the League Cup.

Darius Henderson is available to Milanese after serving his three-match ban following his sending off against Port Vale, but the likes of Romain Vincelot (knee), Lloyd James (broken leg) David Mooney (ankle), Kevin Lisbie (shoulder) are all still ruled out.

Chris Wilder’s Northampton Town are another side with a number of injuries as Evan Horwood (tendonitis), Lewis Hornby (tendonitis), Ian Morris (dislocated knee), Zander Diamond (ankle) Lawson D’Ath (ankle) and Gregor Robertson (back) are all ruled out.

Striker Marc Richards and winger Chris Hackett are back in training, but the match is likely to come too soon for the pair.
