Leyton Orient's Fabio Liverani labels Coventry City match as 'six-pointer'

1 April 2015

Fabio Liverani wants his Leyton Orient team to take confidence from their weekend efforts when they travel to Coventry City for a key Sky Bet League 1 clash on Wednesday.

The O’s boosted their survival hopes on Saturday when they came back from a goal down to beat Port Vale 3-1. And, with games coming thick and fast, Liverani wants to see more of the same, starting at the Ricoh Arena.

“We struggled a bit in the first half [against Port Vale] but played an excellent second half, with three goals, one penalty missed and hit the posts three times,” Liverani told the club's official website.

“That was the first time since I was appointed as manager that we came back and won a game which we were losing so it boosted our confidence.”

Coventry currently sit three points clear of the relegation zone, whilst Orient know a point tonight would take them out of the bottom four ahead of the Easter weekend schedule.

Liverani knows the importance of match against the Sky Blues, and is aware of the threat Tony Mowbray's men will pose after a recent upturn in form.

“Coventry is a big six-pointer game for us. They are a strong, physical side and won three out of their last four games under a very good manager.
