MARV: O’S WON’T LEY DOWN NOW

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Jamie Holt

MARVIN Bart­ley says Ley­ton Ori­ent do not fear any­one as they en­ter the fi­nal stages of their battle to stay in League One.

Ori­ent face a tough run-in, fac­ing Rochdale on Tues­day be­fore pro­mo­tion-chas­ing Sh­effield United and Swin­don.

They suf­fered a set­back in their quest for sur­vival with a mid­week home de­feat to Don­caster and though Bart­ley ad­mits the ten­sion is ris­ing at Bris­bane Road, he be­lieves his team-mates can han­dle it.

“We do feel the pres­sure, be­cause we are un­der pres­sure,” he said. “We can’t fear any­body. If you start fear­ing peo­ple then there’s no point go­ing out there.

“At home the fans get be­hind us; play­ing away the fans get be­hind us. I’ll al­ways be­lieve.

“It’s fair enough that the fans are dis­ap­pointed, but we are go­ing to work even harder in train­ing and put ev­ery­thing into the games to avoid rel­e­ga­tion.

“We’ve played against ev­ery­one, we’re not scared of any team, de­spite them push­ing for pro­mo­tion.”
