Vincelot: 'The performance pleased us'

Despite slipping to a 3-1 home defeat to Bristol City last night, Orient midfielder Romain Vincelot has urged the O’s to maintain a similar level of performance over the remainder of the season.

Chris Dagnall had fired the hosts in front early on, before they were pegged back by Luke Freeman, and then trailed after Aden Flint’s header.

The Robins sealed all three points with a third on the hour mark through Aaron Wilbraham, and although Fabio Liverani’s side fell to defeat, the Frenchman believed they acquitted themselves well.

“We are a bit disappointed, but we are not feeling down. The performance pleased us,” Vincelot told Orient Player.

“You can see why they are top of the league. They have had three chances and three goals. They do the little details very well.

“We had more chances than them. There is a disappointment with the result, but not with the performance.”

Vincelot has been pleased with recent performances, with the O’s picking up nine points of a possible 15 from their least five games.

And the 29-year-old is confident Orient can remain in League One if they deliver performances to a similar level between now and the end of the season.

“Our last five games have been very good and we are in a very positive mood,” he added.

“We have had three wins in those games. We have been consistent in terms of performance and we are in good spirits.

“That is what matters. If we keep going with these type of performances that will help make us safe.”
