Matt Harrold felt that Leyton Orient’s 3-3 draw with Port Vale “had a bit of everything” as the two sides split the points in an entertaining encounter.

Orient took the lead early on before going into the break 2-1 down. They got it back to 2-2 but went behind again late on, however Josh Wright’s header pulled it back once more.

Harrold told the club website: “It had a bit of everything – excitement obviously through going ahead, complete despair at going behind, and then a bit of despair going behind in the second half again but it was two great headers from Wright and deservedly got something out of the game.

“I think we deserved something. I think if we’d have lost it we’d have really been disappointed but at least we’re leaving here with a bit of a positive and we’re looking forward to next week.”

Orient gave themselves the perfect start after four minutes when Wright headed home his first, and while starting on the front foot is something the side have worked on, Harrold feels that the next step is to work on preserving their leads.

He said: “We’ve worked all week on starting the game well, getting on the front foot and showing that determination and aggression that the fans want to see, just to get them up. We know we haven’t done well enough at home and that’s been lacking.

“It’s something we worked on and it worked out perfectly but then something happened and we go in 2-1 down, and it’s something we maybe need to analyse and sort out exactly why we’ve done that. Maybe we’ve dropped off as a team or we’re not concentrating or being nasty enough in the box. It’s something we have to look at but we showed a good reaction in the second half I thought.”
