Orient boss believes his side can test Arsenal again

We will give a good account of ourselves says Slade

ORIENT boss Russell Slade is looking for an improved performance from his side when they travel to Arsenal for an FA Cup fifth round replay next Wednesday.

Jonathan Tehoue set up the replay as the League One side grabbed a last-gasp equaliser on Sunday, but Slade is convinced his side can play even better at The Emirates

“We didn’t think we played that well in the first half on Sunday,” said Slade.

“Arsenal have had a look at us, but we will still go there and give a good account of ourselves, although it gets even more remote in terms of getting through.”
