Bournemouth defender Stephen Purches has his sights set on an FA Cup meeting with his former club Leyton Orient.

Purches made more than 100 appearances in three years with Orient before rejoining the Cherries in 2010.

Bournemouth will travel to east London to meet their League One rivals if they can get past Gillingham in next week's first-round replay.

"We are still in the cup and we can go there with a positive frame of mind," Purches told Bournemouth's official website.

"The reward is a trip to Leyton Orient, which is something I want for the obvious reasons.

"We feel we have the quality to earn the trip there."
