Orient boss Fabio Liverani has every faith that the current squad has the ability to avoid relegation, starting by getting a positive result tomorrow at Chesterfield.

The O’s remain bottom of the League One table after Tuesday’s 1-0 home loss to Notts County, and despite the situation Liverani has confidence they can turn it around.

“When I arrived we were in a bad situation in the table and I was prepared to fight every game to try and avoid relegation,” said Liverani. “I believe in the players and the squad and I am sure we can do better. If we stick together we can get out of this situation.

“In my opinion we played well on Tuesday and we didn’t deserve to lose. We have to think positively and we will find a solution to this situation.

“To achieve the results in the long-term we have to play well and create chances as we did on Tuesday. We have a lot of games remaining and we have to do better.”

Orient have no new injury concerns heading into tomorrow’s game against the play-off chasing Chesterfield, but will still be without the injured Lloyd James, Adam Legzdins, Darius Henderson and Jay Simpson.

“None of the injured players will be back for tomorrow,” he added. “Playing every three days means it is not easy to recover, both physically and mentally, and every game there are some little problems for the players to overcome.

“Chesterfield are fighting for the play-offs so they have plenty of quality, but we are eager to improve our situation.”
