AFC Fylde make long trip down to east London before the O’s have two lengthy journeys up north next week

Rommy Boco has called on Leyton Orient to show their class when AFC Fylde visit Brisbane Road in the National League this weekend.

The O’s have lost their last two games at home to Halifax Town (3-0) and Hartlepool United (2-1) after making an excellent start to the new season in E10 originally.

Boco, fresh from scoring during the 2-2 draw at Aldershot Town last Saturday, is now hoping to start at home to Fylde and give Orient a boost ahead of two upcoming long journeys.

He said: “If we can win at the weekend, then we’ll have a nice trip up north to Tranmere (October 4) and then for Barrow (October 7) and we’ll be confident.

“We need to get back to what we were doing before because we don’t like losing at home and we’ve just lost two in a row.

“All of us know we shouldn’t be in that position. We are strong enough not to do that and it is our home, so we should dictate.

“If you looked at Aldershot on Saturday, during the first 30 minutes they showed us how they play at their home.

“We need to do exactly that as well and we have done it before, but we have had a slight drop of late, yet I think we will be okay and be strong against Fylde.”

Boco has had to settle for a place on the bench since arriving in July from Accrington Stanley, but the one-time Benin international has praised the O’s squad.

He believes they have all the right ingredients to mount a challenge in the National League even if they are currently 13th in the table.

“I have played in many teams and this is one of the best in terms of the attitude of the lads. It’s a good group and we’re really nice to each other so it’s going to work,” said Boco.

“You can feel it when you’re inside and if it wasn’t the case I wouldn’t speak about it, but we feel good and there are no bad eggs in the group.

“It’s a good atmosphere and unfortunately for fans that aren’t around us every day, they can’t really see it.

“They see us on a Saturday and we recently lost three games in a row, so they might be disappointed, but we do work hard every week and hopefully the results will come to show this.”

After a point at Aldershot, O’s will aim to get back to winning ways this Saturday ahead of a gruelling next week away to Tranmere and Barrow.
