Craig Clay was left wondering what could have been, despite being pleased with Leyton Orient’s 0-0 draw with Dagenham & Redbridge on Monday.

The midfielder saw Mark Cousins deny him with a fine save from a one on one opportunity and the Daggers keeper made another impressive save to deny David Mooney a winner.

Clay felt Orient had the better of the chances against their local rivals and was quick to highlight the impact Cousins had on proceedings.

“I went through on my left foot, tried to keep it on target and thought he had already gone down. Fair play, he has managed to get a hand to it,” Clay said.

“He has made a save from Moons as well. If you look at the chances, we have had the better ones and were unlucky not to win today.”

While three points could have been on the agenda, a point against a Daggers side pushing for a play-off berth is not to be sniffed at as the O’s continue their survival bid.

With this in mind, Clay was happy to be leaving Victoria Road with a share of the spoils.

“I think it is a great point,” he said. “I think, if you’re honest, and look at the chances we had, we probably deserved three points.

“On a positive note, it is a good away point and the four games we have played against them they haven’t scored.”
