Orient defender Sean Clohessy is keen for the O’s to return to action with a positive result tomorrow against Exeter City  after an enforced break.

The O’s haven’t played since their 2-2 draw at Stevenage on January 2, and the 28-year-old knows Orient now have to kick on during the second half of the campaign.

“Training has been lively this week and we have all worked hard and hopefully we can take that into tomorrow,” Clohessy told

“We have played a couple games since the halfway mark and the results haven’t gone our way. It is now or never that we have to put out marker down.

“I have been involved in this league before with Southend where we have done well up until Christmas and after that we fell away. It’s better for it to be the other way round. We did alright up until Christmas but now we need to kick on and go on a run and start climbing up into the Play-Off positions.”

Ian Hendon’s side come up against a Grecians side who have excelled in the FA Cup, and have a FA Cup replay with Liverpool on Tuesday, and Clohessy added: “Exeter had dropped off of late but they have been a really good team this season and they will come good again. The FA Cup could be a distraction for them, but I have been there myself and every game brings a new challenge. Every game is going to be tough and no team is easy to play against in this league. You have to look to be positive.”
