O’s Captain Mathieu Baudry admits they need to improve in both boxes after Saturday’s 1-0 loss at Accrington Stanley.
Josh Windass’ first half strike for Stanley settled a game where the O’s had started promisingly, but failed to turn their opportunities into the opening goal.
The 27-year-old admits that is happening all too often, and is something they need to address quickly.
“It wasn’t a good day. You never like to lose at home and it was disappointing how it came about. We need to come back to training, and work hard to put it right,” Baudry told leytonorient.com.
“You can’t fault anyone’s commitment; I think we worked to come back into the game but it didn’t happen.
“It’s frustrating to have the chances to go ahead and then we shoot ourselves in the foot with the goal. It’s happened too many times, but there is no need to panic as there is a long way to go in the season.
“The game summed up the last month where we had the chances to lead the game and after that we conceded a sloppy goal and that made us chase the game. It has happened a few times and it is something we need to fix quickly.”
