Ross Embleton was happy that Leyton Orient “showed our intent” at the start of the second half of their win over Walsall.

The O’s found themselves 1-0 down at the break courtesy of Stuart Sinclair’s goal, but second-half strikes from Joe Widdowson, Matt Harrold and Conor Wilkinson completed a good fightback from the hosts.

Speaking after the game, Embleton said: “My message at half-time was one of a little bit of disappointment because I think that the poor goal we conceded makes the half feel perhaps a little bit worse than it was. I didn’t think we were scintillating but at the same time I didn’t think we were as poor as that feeling felt coming off the pitch.

“My message was that I know how capable you are, you’ve shown that already, don’t panic, stick to what we’ve spoken about. I thought we needed to play with a little more intensity because I felt they were starting to get back behind the ball and I thought we showed our intent pretty quickly at the start of the second half.”

The comeback secured a fourth win of the season for Embleton and his side, but a first at the Breyer Group Stadium since the opening day of the season, and the boss was happy to treat the nearly 7,000-strong crowd to a win.

He said: “We’ve talked about the home support a lot this year and the away support is a completely different thing I think in terms of the people that travel all over the country.

“I was really pleased with the initiative of football for a fiver, I think we were the only game in London someone also told me, so to see such a big crowd and then send everybody home happy with a positive performance, with four goals in the game and three going in our favour, is something everybody at the club should be proud of.

“It means a lot to us to get that home win. Before, we’ve come so close and we’ve been disappointed that our home form hasn’t been better but to send everyone home today with a win is a positive.”
