Leyton Orient midfielder Jobi McAnuff has claimed the pressure is all on table toppers Northampton Town ahead of the League 2 clash at the weekend.
The Cobblers have won their last six league games and sit five points clear at the top, while Orient currently occupy the final play-off position.
And McAnuff, 34, admits the fixture is ‘massive’ but also believes the pressure is all on Chris Wilder’s men to continue their good form, which he hopes can benefit Orient.
He told the Guardian Series: “It’s a massive game and I think to be honest they’re games that suit us.
“There’s a lot of pressure on them and it’s obviously an important game but one that we can really go in and get stuck into, especially off the back of today.
“We’ve shown against a very good team that we can be a match for anyone as long as we’re all performing and doing our jobs. We look forward to it and know we need to be at our best and looking forward to getting a good result.
“As I say, the pressure’s probably more on them (Northampton) being top and for us at home it’s not a bad thing but we need to get back to winning games there. If we can do that and put in performances together like we have done then we will be a threat.”
Orient have won three of their last four games and will be hoping to end the Cobblers’ winning run and put a dent in their title hopes. As it stands 15 points separate the two sides, and the visitors to Brisbane Road even have two games in hand.
