Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade again rued late goals after his side were beaten 2-1 at home to Peterborough.

The O's lost to a late effort at Rotherham last weekend and two efforts in the dying minutes from Peterborough sent them to back-to-back defeats.

Slade said: "It's part of the tapestry and the journey we're on I suppose. This game can be very hurtful at times.

"It was a really hard, close game for both teams today but we managed to get ourselves in front. From that position with just a few minutes to go we should see games out."

David Mooney's second-half goal gave Orient the lead but the O's were left counting the cost of two goals which their manager felt were avoidable.

Slade said: "It's disappointing conceding late goals and it's something we need to address. I thought we gave a free-kick away for the first one which was a little bit clumsy and for the second one we gave the ball away in the middle of the park, when we had decent possession, so really those goals were avoidable."

The manager is rubbish and they should never have taken Lockwood off at half time. He has no hair and doesn't care. Martin Ling has a lot to prove.
