Leyton Orient are benefitting from having Ross Embleton in permanent charge rather than in an interim role, according to James Dayton.

Embleton was appointed as the permanent head coach back in January after two spells this season as the interim.

Dayton feels that now the squad knows who is in charge, they have settled down and the recent good run of form is proof of that.

After Tuesday’s win against Mansfield Town, he said: “Obviously now everyone knows who the boss is and we’ve taken to that and taken to how he wants to implement his style on us and I think you can see from the last few games that we’re definitely coming into a bit of form.

“We’re stamping our authority on games, people are coming here and sitting in and we’ve had to be patient over the last few games and trying to wear teams down.

“We get frustrated, the fans get frustrated because they want goals and it’s more difficult this year. We’ve gone up a level, teams are better and we’ve got to be more patient.

“We showed that on Saturday. The goal comes from a good bit of play, sustained pressure, great ball through from Craig [Clay] to Broph [James Brophy]. Tonight, we kept the ball and they both comes from sustained pressure, keeping teams locked in and waiting for the time to pick them off.”
