Orient boss Andy Edwards believed a point was nothing more than his side deserved as the O's ended the year with a 1-1 draw at home to Cambridge United.
Harrison Dunk's strike looked to have sealed all three points for the visitors, but substitute Ollie Palmer netted his fifth goal of the campaign in the fifth minute of stoppage time to ensure a share of the spoils.
Edwards believed it was imperative to build on the Boxing Day win over Crawley Town, and felt the O's showed plenty of determination in search of the equaliser, which eventually came late on in the game.
The O's manager now hopes the late goal gives them the perfect confidence boost heading into Monday's trip to Exeter City, while he also confirmed striker Jay Simpson has asked to leave the club.
