Leyton Orient assistant coach Ross Embleton says that the club must be “excited by every occasion” as they continue their season tonight against Aldershot Town.

The O’s have had little respite over the last few weeks, playing on most Saturdays and Tuesdays, but Embleton feels as though it aids the players’ momentum.

Speaking after the win against Wrexham at the weekend, he said: “I was reading the programme before the game and Jobi [McAnuff] was talking about how much the boys like playing Saturday-Tuesday.

“I think with the period and the stage of the season we’re at and the situation we’re involved in, you’ve got to be excited by every occasion. Today was a magnificent one in terms of the crowd and everything that went with it.

“You want to be competing at the top. We’ve given ourselves a huge boost over the last week and hopefully we can maintain that on Tuesday.”

Orient recorded three successive league wins for the first time since November with the win over the Dragons, having previously won in midweek away at Barrow and away at Havant & Waterlooville the prior Saturday.

After a period of patchy form in the early part of 2019, the O’s are now riding a wave of momentum, and Saturday’s match winner Marvin Ekpiteta says it’s exactly what they need.

After the Wrexham match, he said: “That’s what we need. Over the next 10 games we just need to keep our heads down and smash through.

“It’s a psychological blow [for the team’s around us in the table] to see that we’re on a great run of form now at the back end of the season which is exactly when we need to be on form.”

With Justin Edinburgh’s side now back at the top of the National League, they will be looking to cement their place in the match against Aldershot, which kicks off at 7.45pm tonight.
