Orient attacker preview’s weekend clash at home and discusses the O’s 100 per cent record in the division
Leyton Orient’s Blair Turgott is expecting a tough test when Bristol Rovers come to Brisbane Road tomorrow (Saturday).
The O’s sit top of the League Two table with 12 points from four games – the only 100 per cent record in the division.
But the Pirates, managed by Darrell Clarke, have made a fantastic start to life back in the Football League after earning promotion via the play-offs last season.
Rovers are fourth in the table with nine points and have won their last three matches, including away to Luton Town and Yeovil Town.
Turgott is sure they will provide a test, but believes Ian Hendon’s side can continue their excellent form.
He said: “Our next match is at home and you could almost say teams are coming to beat us now because of our 100 per cent record.
“It will be a good test and they have obviously started the season well and so have we so everybody will be buzzing. They are on a high from promotion too.
“Of course we take a lot of pride to see us with a 100 per cent record. It is good to look at that, but it is still early doors. There are 46 games in a season and we have only ticked off four. There are still 40-odd matches to go.”
Orient’s super-sub revealed Hendon’s side have set themselves a target for the opening 10 league games.
He wants them to remain focused to ensure they reach that and don’t get complacent because of their fantastic start.
But the former West Ham United youngster did concede it is nice to look at the table when it comes up on the TV.
Turgott added: “We have set ourselves a target for 10 games so we need to reach that so there is a lot more to do.
“Obviously it is good to watch the box and see we are top of the league. We need to keep going, though, and carry on doing well.”
The O’s would love to make it five from five this weekend, but the Pirates certainly won’t go down without a fight.
