Youngsters Shadrach Ogie and Hector Kyprianou, the latter making his senior debut, both started for the O's in that fixture where they run out 4-2 penalty shoot-out winners against the Seagulls after a 1-1 draw.

Left-back Jayden Sweeney all featured on the bench and Maguire-Drew is predicting bright futures for the trio along with many of the club's other hot prospects.

"He (Hector Kyprianou) was brilliant; he's going to be a real player, same as Shadrach.

"We've got a good academy and a lot of youngsters, some that didn't even feature, that are coming through that I believe are going to be top players.

"It's good for them to play in these games."

He added: "They're playing against players a similar age to them, but at the top level, so it can show them the detail they play with and how they take the ball in tight areas and their tactical knowledge.

"I believe Hector, Shadrach, Sweens and loads of them are coming through that I believe will be top players."
