Leyton Orient may well be out of one cup competition this week, but winger Dean Cox hopes it’s a case of second time lucky when the O’s host League Two’s Northampton Town in the area quarter-final of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tonight.

The O’s were knocked out of the FA Cup with a 1-0 first round loss at Oldham Athletic last Saturday and this competition remains their final hope of cup success this term.

And though they would have to negotiate two further rounds after tonight, Cox would love nothing more than to secure a second trip to Wembley inside 12 months.

“We will go home and recover and do it right,” said Cox after Saturday’s defeat at Oldham.

“Hopefully we can put it right on Tuesday. We want to get to Wembley so we are looking to win the game.”

Orient continue to struggle at Brisbane Road, and with a third of the league season gone they are still to secure a home win.

And despite tonight’s game being a Cup competition, Cox hopes a victory in front of their home fans will stand them in good stead heading into two vital league games against fellow strugglers Gillingham and Crewe Alexandra.

“We need a few wins but we need to sort out our home form that’s for sure and keep picking up points,” added Cox.

“We have got Gillingham away and Crewe at home so those two are very big games for us and we are looking to get maximum points.”
