Matt Harrold felt that Leyton Orient grew in strength as the game went on against Salford City.

The striker made a claim for Orient’s late equaliser, although it eventually went down as a Chris Neal own goal, but regardless of who got the decisive touch, he felt it was no more than the O’s deserved.

Speaking to the club website, he said: “We were unlucky going in a half-time. I think it could easily have gone in level but as we’ve learnt so far this season, little errors or switching off or being a touch naïve can result in conceding so although we had a couple of chances, they’re the things we’ve got to learn from.

“It was fully deserved with our second half performance. I think it looked like we were getting stronger and stronger as the game was going on. It’s a point I think we have to take and be fairly happy with, but at the same time we’re probably feeling that we could have a few more points this season.”

Orient’s Achilles heel so far this season has been short lapses in concentration, and that’s something Harrold knows that it’s something they need to cut out of their game.

He said: “I think if you analyse us this season on performances, I think we’ve been very good for most of the games. I think you could probably look at a tiny spell today and maybe a spell at Macclesfield, but apart from that I think we’ve dominated a lot of the games but it is fine margins in football and fine lines with goals. We’ve got to learn quick with those little things.

“If we do learn those little things, then we can really push on and do really well I feel.”
