Ben Chorley has pinpointed Saturday's clash with Exeter as a crucial game in Leyton Orient's bid for a top-half finish.

The 28-year-old centre-back believes the O's must beat teams like Exeter in order to mount a serious challenge following their tough start to the season.

"I think they (Exeter) may be in and around us come Christmas time, so we need to start picking up points now and make sure we're at least mid-table then, so we can kick on," Chorley told the West Essex Guardian.

"We had a very hard start to the season, our manager's been saying that too, but eventually you have to play every team home and away, so maybe you want to get them out of the way rather than play them later in the season."
