Leyton Orient's new signing Kevin Lisbie is keen to impress after being handed a four-month deal.
The ex-Colchester striker made his O's debut against his former club, as the League One table footers earned a 1-1 draw thanks to Jimmy Smith's last-minute leveller.
The 32-year-old had been looking for a new club since leaving Ipswich at the end of last season and he told skysports.com that he has no qualms in dropping into the third-tier.
"I was an absolute nightmare to live with on a Saturday because watching football isn't anywhere close to playing matches."
