LEGENDARY Leyton Orient striker, Peter Kitchen, has urged the O’s supporters to turn out in force as the east Londoners look to continue their recent revival.
Orient have picked up four points from their last two Sky Bet League Two matches, including a mammoth 3-2 success at promotion chasing Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday evening, a result that saw them move level on points with Cheltenham Town, who are just outside the dropzone.
Speaking to Yellow Sport ahead of the O’s vital clash with fellow strugglers, Notts County, at Brisbane Road, Kitchen said: “Without doubt, the Orient supporters have been marvellous, especially what with everything that has gone on this season. But now they need to fetch their friends and families along to Brisbane Road to give the team that extra lift that could see them climb out of the relegation places.
“The boys have shown real spirit to pick up four points on the road. Admittedly, home form has been a problem this season, but this young team have just proved that they can rise to the occasion and the fans can play their part.”
Visitors, Notts County, sit a single point and two places above Orient, but a home win could see Danny Webb’s men jump four places if other results go their way. “I know it’s difficult what with everything going on behind the scenes, but the team needs to be the focus and how we can help them, Kitchen continued.
“Every match will be like a cup final for Orient now. During the ninety minutes, the players and fans must be as one if Orient are to stand any chance of performing the great escape.”
