Dean Cox dedicated Saturday’s victory over Rochdale to the O’s supporters as they signed off the season with a victory in E10.

It was just the sixth time Orient took three points in front of their own fans in what proved a difficult season for the club.

Cox opened the scoring on Saturday to bag his ninth goal of the campaign, with only top scorer Kevin Lisbie netting more times.

And the former Brighton & Hove Albion man moved to praise the O’s faithful for the support they have shown through what has been a disappointing season.

He continued: “The fans were terrific today. I have got to be honest, considering what has gone on this year, it hasn’t been the best.

“I am quite honest and a lot of the lads are. It hasn’t been good enough but they have come out in force today and the lap of honour was credit to them because they clapped us all the way around.”
