Experienced defender discusses spirit in the camp and why they should watch back Tuesday night’s match with Plymouth
Nicky Hunt believes Leyton Orient have to take the positives from Tuesday night into this weekend’s clash with Barnet.
The east Londoners make the trip to the Hive to face the Bees in League Two tomorrow (Saturday).
Although Orient go into the encounter on the back of three consecutive defeats, confidence is high.
Andy Edwards’ team played 76 minutes with just nine men on Tuesday against Plymouth Argyle and only lost 2-0, which resulted in the O’s fans applauding them off the pitch at full time.
Hunt said: “We’ve always had the belief. Results haven’t gone our way, especially at home, but away we’ve been superb.
“We just need to concentrate and I think we need to watch this game back – all the lads and maybe get it sent to our emails.
“I think we should watch it back and take every single positive you can and it just shows what we can do. We now need to go and do it at Barnet.”
Orient’s club captain insists all of the squad are desperate to bring success to Brisbane Road this season.
Hunt, 33, discussed the mood in the camp after what has been a difficult start to the new campaign.
“You can’t let the spirit drop in training and in the changing room,” said the ex-Accrington Stanley defender.
“We spend 80 per cent of our lives together for 10 months a year. If you are not together it is going to show on the pitch.
“But we showed everyone at the game on Tuesday that we are together. We are a million per cent behind this club and want the best for this club and that’s what we’ll continue to do.”
Hunt and the rest of his team-mates will hope to show that once again at Barnet on Saturday.
