McSweeney hoping for cup run

McSweeney: optimistic

Leon McSweeney is hoping Leyton Orient can embark on another FA Cup run this season as the come against non-league Bromley.

The summer signing from Hartlepool was watching on television as Orient reached the fifth round last term and famously took mighty Arsenal to a replay.

The Os begin this season's cup campaign against the Ravens and midfielder McSweeney wants to taste some of the magic of the cup for himself.

"I think everyone was watching at the time," he told the Guardian Series.

"It was little Leyton Orient against the big boys. That is the kind of thing that the FA Cup can bring.

"I don't want to count my chickens but I would like a nice cup run."
