Justin Edinburgh says there will be “no sentiment” in his team selection for the FA Trophy final this Sunday.

The O’s have battled through five rounds to reach this stage, starting with a 4-0 win at home to Beaconsfield Town in December, and the head coach has picked a strong team throughout the competition.

He said: “There will be no sentiment brought into it. It’s a final and it’s a final we’ve worked incredibly hard to get in to and the fact is that we want to win it. I and my staff will pick the team that we feel can go and do that on the day.

“Obviously Daytes [James Dayton] has had the operation and is a big blow because I don’t think you can forget how big a part he’s played this season in the trophy so he’ll definitely miss out but other than that everyone is in with a shout of being selected and being in the squad.”

It won’t be the first time either Edinburgh or Orient have been to the national stadium, albeit with them having contrasting fortunes on their previous visits. The boss guided Newport County through the National League play-offs when late goals against Wrexham gave them the win in an all-Wales affair.

Orient, meanwhile, in a complete switch to Newport’s jubilation, suffered play-off heartbreak on their last trip to Wembley, losing the League One final to Rotherham United, and Edinburgh wants to reward the fans with success to overcome that loss.

He said: “I think off the back of what we’ve achieved so far, for me it’s a little bit of payback for the fans really. Even before my time but since I’ve been here they’ve been incredibly supportive to myself, the team and the staff.

“They can go there with our main objective complete but knowing what a fantastic day it will be and that it will probably be roles reversed from the last time they were there. For me, it’s an honour to lead Leyton Orient out in a final knowing that we’re going for the double. It’s a proud occasion, all my family and friends will be there and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Fylde have battled their way through to the final in a similar vein to the O’s, beating step seven side Stratford Town and Biggleswade Town in the opening rounds before needed a replay to beat step eight outfit Ramsbottom United after a stunning 5-5 draw in the initial tie.

A penalty shoot-out win over Barnet then followed in the quarter-final before they overcame National League North winners Stockport County in the semi-final.

On their qualities, Edinburgh said: “I like them a lot. I like the way Dave [Challinor] sets his teams up and he’s had a fantastic seven or eight years there. I think he’s always been involved in play-offs or promotions so they’re a team that know how to win or get success.

“We’re now solely concentrating on getting ourselves mentally and physically in the best condition we can be for the cup final.”
