Orient boss Slade admits there was a mountain to climb
First half performance left manager frustrated
ORIENT manager Russell Slade saw his side’s 14-match unbeaten run disappear at Brentford and admitted the first half performance was not good enough.
“The first half is the one that will frustrate me and annoy me a little bit. I don’t think we got out of the blocks very well,” he admitted, as O’s look to get their play-off push back on track against Brentford on Tuesday,
“I was really disappointed with the first goal, it’s a runner from midfield. It’s something that doesn’t happen to us very often we’ve not tracked him
“He’s finished well to be fair to him, but it’s a disappointing goal from our point of view. And then they doubled their lead.”
Orient hit back and Scott McGleish cut the deficit in the second half.
“It was a complete contrast to the second half where I thought we were the better side and created four or five very good openings and you would expect us to score a couple of goals. But it gave us a mountain to climb and not alway do you come back from two goals down.
