Moses Odubajo made it seven goals this season with his strike at Shrewsbury – and the Orient winger feels extra finishing training is paying dividends.

The 20-year-old scored just three times in 54 games last season, but showed 
excellent composure to round Shrewsbury keeper Chris Weale and slide the ball in from a tight angle.

Odubajo’s form has been excellent this season, despite sometimes being forced to play out of position at right back due to injuries, and he attributes this to manager Russell Slade and his coaching staff.

He said: “The boss told me to work on my finishing and it’s paying off.

“I gambled off Jamar’s touch. He’s a good player to work with, very quick feet.

“Russell Slade plays a big part with the little things in training. All the coaching staff work on different parts of my game, as with the all the players, and you can see that with the results we’ve been getting this season.”

Orient return to home 
action against Carlisle on Saturday after four away games in succession and the travelling is starting to take its toll on the players.

They will be delighted to be back in action in front of their home fans, according to Odubajo.

“The travelling is tough. The pitch wasn’t as bad as it was against Yeovil, but the lads started to get tired towards the end,” he added.

“We haven’t been at home for a while, which will be nice and I’d like to give a shout out to our away fans.

“Now we need to recover, train and go again on Saturday.”
