“It’s About How We Maintain This Consistency Going Forward”

Leyton Orient head coach Justin Edinburgh wants his side to push on after their unbeaten run was ended last weekend. The O’s sit second in the League ahead of their trip to Maidenhead today and highlights the importance of building on their great start. Speaking to East London Advertiser it’s a fantastic start from the boys and now it’s about how we maintain this consistency going forward”.

  • League Record – P14  W8  D5  L1  F27  A10
  • Taken 19 points from last 24 available
Orient last 5 results

Orient’s last Six Results

Orient’s first defeat of the season came courtesy of a Jonah Ayunga which claimed all three points for Sutton. Edinburgh was disappointed his sides unbeaten run came to an end but knows the importance of their response. Speaking to leytonorient.comI think we’re frustrated in sense of being beaten and not getting something from the game. Sutton came to do a job and they done it well. The key for us is how we react to this and go forward”

  • Orient have only failed to score in one league game
  • Scored in 14 of their last 15 league games
  • Scored in their last eight away games
  • Scored in 10 of their last 11 away games (last failed, 0-1 Hartlepool, 17/4/2018)

 

With just five points separating the top seven, Edinburgh acknowledged the importance of his sides starting quickly this season. The O’s have promotion in their sights and the former Newport man knows that his side must stay within the pack if they are to challenge. Speaking to leytonorient.comwe reflect as a group, the start had to be a good one, one that we needed to be because of how many teams started so well. It’s one we are grateful for and one we certainly needed to keep ourselves in he ack of six or seven teams. The thing for us now as a group is how we respond and our reaction”

Goalkeeper Dean Brill has been an ever present since Edinburgh’s appointment back in November 2017. The O’s have not lost back to back league games under Edinburgh and Brill highlights his side will respond on Saturday. Speaking to East London Advertiserit is another challenge for us and that is for us to bounce back after a defeat. We did it last season I think we have only lost nine games since the gaffer has come in so we don’t like losing and there will be a response at Maidenhead”.

  • Orient have not lost consecutive league games since December 2017 (Torquay 3-0, Solihull Moors 1-0)

Response after League Defeats under Edinburgh

Orient travel to Maidenhead with the Best Away Record in the division with defender Marvin Ekpiteta hoping the fans can back them to another victory on Saturday. Ekpiteta was named Manarama League Player of the Month for September on Friday which capped off a great month for the 23 year old after being called into the England C squad. Ekpiteta stated to guardian-seriesThe away fans have been unreal all season. They’ve been behind us all the time and we’ve got some great results away from home at some tough places. They’ve got a massive art to play so it will be good if they could continue to follow us”

  • Away Record – P7  W4  D3  L0  F14  A5
  • Won three of their last four
  • Only lost one of their last 12 away league games – W6  D5  L1 (0-1 Hartlepool, 17/04/18)
  • Conceded just nine goals in last 12 away league games
  • Eight of their 14 away goals have been in the second half – including seven in the final 30 minutes of games

The O’s won at Maidenhead last August in a tight affair and Edinburgh is expecting no different at York Road today. The Magpies have won four of their last five at home with Edinburgh keen for side to be at 100%. Speaking to leytonorient.com we are mindful, it’s a tough place to go, they have been very good at home this season and they will be wounded from their defeat to Salford. We have been very good on the road this season and we are looking to continue that, if we are we need to be at our best”

  • Kept five league clean sheets – Two away
  • No Clean sheet in last two
  • Only one clean sheet in last five
  • Two clean sheets in last four away games
  • Only AFC Fylde (3) have conceded fewer away goals
