Connor Essam made his O’s debut in the 2-0 win over Barnet last weekend, and is keen to kick on help Orient build on their fine start.

Essam signed a one-year deal with the Club earlier in the summer having been on trial at Orient, and made a promising start to his O’s career in Saturday’s success over the Bees.

And though the 23-year-old admits tonight will be a tough test in the Capital One Cup against Championship opposition in the shape of MK Dons, the defender is keen to provide an early Cup shock.
