ARGYLE will look to bounce back to winning ways as Leyton Orient visit Home Park on Tuesday night...

...and Derek Adams is confident that his table-topping team are feeling positive going into the mid-week clash. 

Orient are currently seventh in League 2, but have won just three of their last 13. In comparison, Argyle have won eight of their last 13, despite a 2-1 defeat against Exeter on Saturday. 

Derek is confident his side are in good spirits despite Saturday's defeat, and says that he was happy with how his side played. 

"They are in a positive frame of mind," said Derek, "We dominated the chances in the game; the way we reacted after losing the penalty and losing the goal was excellent. [As was] the way we went about it for the rest of the game. I thought we should have taken more out of the game with the chances we had. We had a lot more than Exeter; even in the first-half we had a lot more than them. 

"I was happy with the way we played, we lost a penalty at an important time but if you look at it they have won a foul that led to the ball in the box and it was never a foul. The referee was the only person that saw that and then Kelvin gives away a penalty kick. Overall we have created a lot of chances and just not been able to get back to level terms. 

"You are always going to have disappointments. We have had to deal with a team that played a lot of long balls on Saturday and we have dealt with that well. We passed it and used the channel areas well on Saturday." 

With the Pilgrims topping League 2 and heading into the Devon derby, Saturdays bumper crowd of 14,008 pleased Derek. 

"I think the supporters have all come out because of the way the team are performing. There was a fantastic attendance on Saturday and it is one that has not been here for a wee while. We are all delighted at that but disappointed that we were not able to win the match, but we have got another couple of games before we have a break now."
