HEADING FOR REVENGE

28 January 2013

DEFENDER Aden Flint is hoping to erase memories of a torrid night in E10 with three points from Tuesday night’s trip to Leyton Orient.

The defender made his second professional debut at The Matchroom Stadium back in January 2011 and saw the home side race into a 3-0 lead in just over half an hour. The centreback then returned to former club Alfreton Town on loan before an appearance in the final League One game of the season at Tranmere Rovers.

The O's were 1-0 winners over Town in the reverse fixture back at The County Ground in September with the Robins aiming to extend their unbeaten run to eight.

“I don’t have good memories of going to Leyton Orient, but hopefully that will change with a win on Tuesday,” said Flint. “I made my second professional debut there a few seasons back and we lost the game 3-0. It was a difficult start and tough times but thankfully we have come a long way since then.

“It wasn’t one to remember really but hopefully we can erase that memory with a win this time around. We are in good form and eager to get going again.”

The hosts will go into the game on the back of a home win over Notts County on Saturday whilst the Robins were without a weekend fixture following the postponement of the away game at Tranmere Rovers.

“Orient hit a decent bit of form in November and have come right up the league. They have got some good results but we have to go into tomorrow’s game like any other and do our best to come away with a victory.”

Flint returned to the Town starting line-up for the recent win over Shrewsbury Town but could face competition on Tuesday from Joe Devera, who has now recovered from a hamstring injury.
