Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade praises deadly O's after magnificent seventh consecutive win in Notts County rout
Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade described his side as "deadly" after they thrashed Notts County 5-1 to open up a five-point lead in League One.
The O's are the only professional club in England yet to drop a point after they clinched a record breaking seventh consecutive victory to start the season.
Kevin Lisbie netted a first-half brace while Dean Cox and substitutes Shaun Batt and Jayden Stockley sealed another magical night at Brisbane Road.
Slade said: "I couldn't be happier and the goals were raining in tonight. Everyone was chipping in really. Notts County came here with a certain gameplan and we had to adjust to that and as soon as we began to deal with that we got on top a little bit.
"As you know when we get in that final third we're deadly at the minute. If it's not David Mooney, it's Lisbie [on target] and I'm delighted for the others that have come on with Shaun scoring and Jayden's taken his goal really well, so that's good news for us."
Orient were strong favourites to pick up the three points against bottom club Notts County but Slade praised his side's determination to win and ability to handle rising expectations.
The O's boss said: "I think we have to embrace that expectancy at the minute because we'd won all six games and were playing a team struggling to get a result at the minute. The expectancy is there and we've got to embrace and enjoy that.
"You can't question the will to win. That's the phenomenal part about us. We have a fantastic will to win."
