Leyton Orient defender Scott Cuthbert insists the squad remains together as it ever has going into tonight’s game.

Boss Russell Slade is fighting to keep hold of his job at Brisbane Road, and looks set to depart if he loses tonight at Notts County.

And despite all that talk, Cuthbert insists the team are ready to fight for each other to make sure they get the three points at Meadow Lane.

“It’s massively important in any situation when the chips are down that you all gather together and get a win,” said Cuthbert.

“It’s a great team with a great bunch of lads with a great team spirit and we’ll be fighting together on Tuesday to get the three points.

“That togetherness will never get broken, we have got too many good lads in the changing room that will fight for eacho ther and that’s what we will do.”

O’s have only lost two games all season, but have also drawn three, and three of their four wins have come in the cup competitions.

But their form on the road has been solid, and Cuthbert is after more of the same, despite their struggles at home.

“We have been good on our travels and there’s a bit more added pressure at home for us to get the wins especially after last season when we finished beaten Peterborough here,” he added.

“Having a game on Tuesday is a good thing. We always know there’s game around the corner.

“There would be nothing worse than going into this week knowing that you are not playing Tuesday and you’ve got a to wait for Saturday. We are focused on getting the result on Tuesday.”
