Leyton Orient striker Kevin Lisbie hopes to break his FA Cup goal duck when they face Hull City in the third round on Saturday.

The 34-year-old has made 15 appearances in the competition during his career, but has yet to find the net.

He told BBC London 94.9: "I've played football for 15 or 16 years but not scored in the FA Cup.

"It's probably one of the biggest cups in the world, so you look forward to playing these games."

Lisbie has scored nine goals in 21 games for the O's this season but has missed the League One's side's last two fixtures because of a shoulder injury.

With the Tigers currently pushing for promotion to the Premier League, the former Charlton Athletic trainee says the tag of underdogs should help the east London side.

"It is a massive game for the players and the club.

"You don't go second in that league [the Championship] at this moment without being a good team. They are well organised and have got a good manager," he said.

"It will be a hard game but one we're looking forward to."

Lisbie added: "It will be nice to go to a ground where we are not favourites. We can put the pressure on them.

"We've had two games where the pressure has been on us to win the game. One of them [away to Alfreton] was on TV which made it extra difficult. It will be nice to go into a game and relax."
