Leyton Orient goalkeeper Jamie Jones has Wembley in his sights ahead of Tuesday night's trip to Stevenage in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy southern area quarter-final.

Orient are currently flying high at the top of League One following their storming start to the season, having won 12 and lost just one of their opening 15 matches.

Russell Slade's side also reached the area final last season were they were pipped over two legs by eventual runners-up Southend, and they have begun this season's competition in a similar vein with wins over Gillingham and Coventry.

And Jones is determined to go one better this term and take the Londoners all the way to the national stadium.

"I like this tournament, it's a good opportunity to get to Wembley," he said.

"We don't mess about with our team selection in this tournament and Coventry didn't either so it was nice to get through."

Orient needed penalties to see off the Sky Blues and Jones grasped the opportunity to be the hero in the shoot-out by saving from Franck Moussa as his side went through 4-2.

"It's always good to save a penalty and help the boys out, and the standard of our penalties was brilliant," added Jones.

"Once I've made a save I am always confident the boys are going to score theirs."
