Gary Sawyer: Up for the challenge

The O's head into the first of their final two fixtures at Coventry this weekend four points behind sixth-placed Swindon but with spirits high following a 2-0 weekend win over MK Dons.

The former Bristol Rovers defender told the Epping Forest Guardian: "I think we have to target the play-offs. That's what everyone has to look for and what we all want to do. If we can nick it then that would be fantastic.

"I think we've got some very good players at this club and it just shows we can beat anyone on our day. At the minute, Swindon have the advantage and the ball's in their court so we can only do what we can do but hopefully we can do enough.

"It's set us up well for next year but fingers crossed we can nick in, although it's a tough ask.

"I think the boys are more than capable of doing it. We've worked really hard together and on the training ground and it shows. We've done very well this year and hopefully we can cap it off."

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.

aha, The Fine? That will really hurt. Thats like me biting someone in my place of work and getting fined 78p. I would round it up to 80p because thats how much a packet of Quavers or a Topic are in the machine. The bans are heavy though, and rightly so.
