Orient player-manager Kevin Nolan believes they are in for a tough day at the office when the host Morecambe tommorrow.

The O’s will be looking to build on last weekend’s win at Oxford, while the Shrimps picked up a 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon for their first success in 11 games and despite that

“Morecambe are going to be a good, tough side and they never give you an easy game. We know we are going to be tested, but if we stick to our game plan and impose ourselves on them we can get the result we need,” he told Orient PlayerHD.

The game will be the last before Jobi McAnuff and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin go on international duty, and Nolan is hoping they make a positive impact once again.

“I am certainly hoping Jobi and Calaum will go out on a high before they go on international duty. Jobi has been fantastic as I have said on numerous occasions and he was great again last week with the finish at Oxford and we are hoping he can continue that before he goes away and the same stands for Calaum.

“He is a great lad around the training ground and has been good in the games and we hope  that they come back in the same condition as they leave us in and I will be touching a load of wood when they are away.”
