Orient out to spoil Macclesfield’s party

Leyton Orient Assistant Manager Ross Embleton has said that his side will go into tomorrow’s game with Macclesfield with the intention of “spoiling” the Silkmen’s promotion party.

Macclesfield require just four points from their final three league games to be crowned National League champions and victory tomorrow will all but assure their return to the Football League after a six year absence.

Orient come into tomorrow’s game on the back of an emphatic 4-1 victory over relegation threatened Barrow last weekend and Embleton believes his side should adopt a similar mentality for the trip to Victoria Park. The Orient Assitant told the club’s official website,  “It’s totally different circumstances to our last game but the attitude has to remain the same. We looked at the situation Barrow are in, fighting for their lives, and we know we had to go there and spoil the situation and add to their woes really.

“They’re making every opportunity to get back in the Football League and we’ve got to there and make an impression in front of the cameras, we’ve got to continue to build on what we’ve done in recent times.

“We’re going to go with the hopes of spoiling the party and delaying that opportunity to go up a little bit longer.”

Orient have spent this season adapting to life in non-league following relegation from League Two last year. The club are currently sitting in 13th position with five games left to play.
