AFC Telford boss Gavin Cowan has told Leyton Orient the pressure is on them as the sides do battle for a place at Wembley, the Shropshire Star report.

Orient hold a 1-0 advantage after Saturday’s FA Trophy semi-final first leg at Brisbane Road.

Now the National League leaders will make the trip to Shropshire this Saturday with more than 3,000 tickets already sold for the second leg.

And Cowan feels that, despite the National North Bucks losing in London, all the expectation is on Justin Edinburgh’s team.

“There was no fear going into it and ultimately there is no pressure on us,” said Cowan

“The expectation is on Orient and there is nothing for us to lose.

“We wanted the tie to still be alive and it is.

“We are excited to bring them back to our place and I trust my players to perform when needed and bring things over the line.”
