Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade insists his side "should have been out of sight" against Crewe after they were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw at Brisbane Road this afternoon.

The O's dominated the first half but hit the woodwork twice and only had Lee Cook's goal to show for their efforts before Crewe earned a point through Byron Moore.

The Orient boss was delighted with his team's performance and his only disappointment was their inability to convert their chances into the three points. 

Slade said: "For me, we should have been 4 or 5-1 up in the first period. I thought we were absolutely excellent.

"You know we made changes but with some of the football we played and the openings we created the game should have been out of sight by half-time for sure.

"That's a lucky side in that away changing room at half-time knowing they've gone in at 1-1 and are still in a football match because they should have been dead and buried."
