JOBI McAnuff expects a game between two footballing sides when Latics head to Leyton Orient.

The interim manager at Brisbane Road following Ross Embleton’s departure at the end of last month, the 39-year-old is looking to build on back-to-back away wins at Newport and Carlisle over the last few days.

But the 11th-placed O’s have not won on home soil since the middle of January, a run of six games.

“Having watched a bit of them recently, they’re a good footballing team, they want to play which is a little bit leftover from Harry Kewell’s time there,” said McAnuff, who has continued to make himself available as a player.

“They certainly want to get on the ball and pass it, as will we, so it should make for a good game.

“They had a good result the other night so certainly for us we know we need to be at the level we have been recently.

“At home it’s very important we get back to winning games and it’s a good opportunity to do that.”

The Orient boss knows a win over Latics would complete an excellent seven days.

“It makes Saturday even more important now,” the former Reading, Wimbledon and Crystal Palace winger told his club’s website.

“Having got six points we want to go and maximise what has been a really good week.”
