SATURDAY PREVIEW: Time to push on says Revell
Goal star wants another Bristol Rovers performance
ORIENT striker Alex Revell is urging his team-mates to build on the recent run of good results and continue their climb up the table.
The O’s entertain third-placed Bournemouth on Saturday and after suffering just two defeats in their last nine league games, Russell Slade’s side have edged towards mid-table security.
Revell netted twice as Orient recorded their first away win in the league since January last weekend against Bristol Rovers and the striker said: “We have to look to replicate the kind of performance, because if we keep doing that we’ll keep on getting results.
“Recently we have been very unlucky away from home, but we went to Bristol Rovers, which is a difficult place to go and won 3-0. We deserved that and I think we deserved that result for a lot of our performances,” continued the striker who scored his 10th goal of the season in Tuesday night’s FA Cup win against Dagenham & Redbridge.
Orient are likely to be without skipper Stephen Dawson for the Bournemouth game, although he is on his way back to fitness following an ugly challenge from Carl Regan at Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
With Adam Chambers recovering from an operation on a calf problem, it leaves O’s short in midfield, but on-loan Andrew Whing, who was unable to play in Tuesday night’s FA Cup replay will be available.

Bournemouth, promoted from League Two last season, have been the surprise package this time around, but of their seven league wins to date, only one has come on their travels and that was back in August when they beat Tranmere Rovers 3-0 at Prenton Park.
The match marks the return of former O’s skipper Stephen Purches, who joined the Cherries in the summer.
