Sheehan | We Want To Put A Smile On Faces

Josh Sheehan celebration Jerome

Josh Sheehan wants Wanderers to make it a happy Christmas for the fans with three points against Leyton Orient.

The Whites play their final home game of 2023 against the O’s this afternoon (Saturday).

And Sheehan knows what it means to the supporters to see their side win as Ian Evatt’s men look to bounce back from last Saturday’s first home defeat in seven games against Bristol Rovers.

“We are all desperate (to make amends) because we know the results affect the fans and their moods through the week,” said the midfielder who is again available to boss Evatt after serving a one-match ban.

“There's going to be a big crowd on Saturday because of the family prices and we know results have an impact on people's attitudes. It keeps people happy when we win.

“That's what the boys will be saying going into the game, that people will enjoy their Christmas more if we can win the game so that's what we'll be aiming for.”

The visit of Orient is another Community Day fixture at the Toughsheet Community Stadium, with reduced ticket prices set to contribute to a crowd expected to be over 21,000.

Most of the those will be hoping to see a first league win in four games for Wanderers, with Sheehan hopeful of a flying start to the festive period to get the Whites - who could go second in the table with victory - back among the League One front-runners.

“We want to put a smile on everyone's faces and we want to make sure we get winning again because all the teams around us are starting to pick up results as well,” added the Wales international.

“There are a lot of games in such a short space of time and we feel like if we can get a few wins, or get the momentum going again, then you never know what can happen.

“We went on a good run and we want to get on a run again. This is a great time to start it because there are so many games in a short period of time.”
