Former Rotherham United forward full of praise for O's supporters and wants to give them more to cheer at Brunton Park

Leyton Orient forward Jordan Bowery is hoping to reward the fans who make the long trip to Carlisle United on Saturday.

The ex-Aston Villa striker hit the winner at Morecambe last weekend in League Two to send the 257 O’s supporters back to east London in happy mood.

They are on the road once again to support Orient with a visit to Brunton Park to take on the Cumbrians.

Another difficult fixture is expected, but after beating the Shrimps, who were top of the table, Andy Hessenthaler’s team are full of confidence.

Bowery said: “These two trips to Morecambe and Carlisle are a long way, so fair play to the fans that came last Saturday.

“Respect to them because it is a long way and we hope to see them all again this weekend.

“At this moment in time we’re only a month in, so anybody can be top. It’s obviously changing a lot, but we know we can beat anybody in this league.”

Morecambe were on a four game winning streak in the league before Orient visited Globe Arena on Saturday.

The O’s brought that to an end with goals from Liam Kelly and Bowery sealing an excellent 2-1 victory.

But results at home have been few and far between with a 3-0 success over Stevenage the only points they’ve earned at Brisbane Road this season.

“Morecambe were top of the league but we need to just take one game at a time,” said Bowery.

“Hopefully we can pick the home form up. We do want to get that sorted, but as long as we get our away wins we’ll take each match as it comes.”

After being released by Oxford United at the end of the previous season, Bowery didn’t wait long to join Orient.

He has been with the east Londoners since July and is hoping he can keep on improving after netting his first league goal on Saturday.

Bowery added: “I’m enjoying my time as an Orient player, they are a great bunch of lads and we have good staff. I’ve fitted in well so far so hopefully there is even better things to come.”
