Ogogo is convinced 2013/14 will not see a repeat of the relegation battle which saw Wayne Burnett's men secure Football League survival on goal difference on the last day of last season.

"Those odds are the incentive for us to go out there and have a great season," Ogogo told London24.

"Having spoken to all the guys at training, everyone is keen for there not to be a repeat of last season and we are all confident we can prove the bookies are wrong.

"For parts of last season we were on the verge of the play-offs so we know we have it within us to challenge.

"The whole team has benefited from last season, it was a good test for the squad and with a few new additions hopefully we can be up there in with a shout of the play-offs."

The East Londoners have returned to training and take on Whitstable Town in their first pre-season friendly on Saturday.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them.

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
