Fulham manager Chris Coleman is relishing his side’s FA Cup third round tie with Leyton Orient.

The two sides meet on January 8 at Craven Cottage for the first time in eight years and Coleman has predicted an exciting clash in prospect.

‘It’s a great draw for us,’ Coleman said. ‘I like Orient because they play good football. It will be a good match.

‘Sometimes when you play against teams in the lower leagues they can be a little bit one-dimensional and want to beat you up a little bit. It will be a tough game, a good test.’

Meanwhile, Os boss Martin Ling has predicted a bright future for youngster Brian Saah. The 18-year-old has featured in the last two matches and Ling has been impressed with him.

‘Brian has done really well at centre-back so far, which is great news,’ Ling said. ‘We’ve let in only three goals in five games, so things are fine at that end of the pitch.
