Orient boss Slade looks to end away-day curse
O’s hope to break their duck at Swindon
ORIENT boss Russell Slade is desperate for his side to break their away-day curse at Swindon Town tomorrow (Saturday).
The O’s are just one of two sides in the Division who have not won away from home in the league this season, and Slade is desperate to put the record straight.
“Since I have been here we have won six at home, drawn two and lost two and I think that’s decent,” he said.
“But what we have got to address is our away form, which has been a problem since last October.

“That’s what we’re striving so hard to do. We’re really trying hard to get something away, and after last weekend’s victory over Hartlepool, if we could record back-to-back wins on Saturday it would be tremendous.”
The Robins have suffered a play-off hangover this season and are currently just three points ahead of the O’s. Slade’s side already have a victory at the County Ground under their belts.

Slade insists that the away form has not become a psychological burden on the team. “There is nothing wrong with our confidence and self belief,” he said.
“We have only lost one of our last five games and while we can’t get carried away after last Saturday’s win against Hartlepool, we can take heart from it and look to take the momentum forward into the Swindon game.”
