Kevin Nugent admitted he was most pleased for the loyal Leyton Orient supporters that travelled to Doncaster after he picked up his first league win as interim manager. 

Nugent has endured a difficult start to his time in charge of the O's but enjoyed his best night since replacing the departed Russell Slade as Orient won 2-0 at Doncaster. 

Nugent said: "I'll tell you who I was most pleased for. We had 236 fans here today and it cost them a few quid to get up on a Tuesday night in Doncaster. It was fantastic and I was so pleased for them as much as anyone else.

"It means a lot and I'm pleased for the 236 fans that were here. You could see how much it meant to them by the way they were clapping and applauding. 

In terms of myself I'm certainly not feeling any strain because I'm enjoying every minute of it. I'll do whatever's best for this football club and hopefully we continue to get some wins."

An early Jay Simpson effort opened the scoring before a stunning Darius Henderson strike clinched the three points and extended Orient's unbeaten away record. 

Nugent said: "It was an exciting game and a good away performance by us. I'm really pleased obviously with the three points. 

"There were some really big performances from our players and I'm certainly not going to single anyone out because it was an absolute group effort. But I'm really pleased with the two finishes."
