Orient boss delighted with first-half display in record equalling Crewe Alexandra win
Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade believes his side produced a great performance in the first half as their 2-0 win over Crewe kept them top of League One.
Moses Odubajo and a David Mooney penalty in the first half gave the O's their fourth consecutive league victory which equalled their record winning start to a season set in 1910-11.
Slade, whose side also missed a penalty through Kevin Lisbie, said: "It was a great performance in the first half. I thought they didn't seem to be able to cope with us defensively and we carved a lot of openings in the first period.
"The only disappointment was we didn't convert one penalty but we kept control of the game and kept going and pushing on and got the second one.
"There probably could have been another penalty in there, I have to say, but opportunities came all through the half and 2-0 was a more than fair result at half-time.
"Crewe inevitably came back into it in the second period and got a few corners and put us under a bit of pressure. But when they did we were good enough to get the block in or there was an exceptionally good save from Jamie Jones along the way as well. Whoever has been called upon this afternoon has done a job."
