Slade confident Os can turn corner
Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade thinks belief is the key element his side need in order to kick-start their season.
Slade gave a league debut to goalkeeper Ryan Allsop and also drafted in recent signings Martin Rowlands and Lee Cook, and was disappointed his men remain pointless after a 1-0 defeat at Crawley. "Crawley had one or two chances and we just needed more belief in and around the box," said Slade. "Had we scored it would have given us a fantastic lift. Crawley had possession but they didn't batter the door down. The players just need belief as games are very tight. "This was a typical League One match and there was very little in it. We were well and truly in the game but at times we looked a bit leggy towards the end." Orient had the backing of nearly 700 fans and although disappointed at the start they have made, Slade has no doubt things will turn in their favour. He added: "We have got enough talent and ability to turn it round. Following our Capital One cup tie at Everton in midweek, time to prepare was limited but the spirit in the camp is good and the group is together."
