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."
