REACTION: Payne - 'We gave away sloppy goals'

access_time 6 years ago

Orient midfielder Jack Payne admits they are giving themselves too much to do in games following their 2-1 loss at Bristol Rovers.

A brace from Rory Gaffney saw the O’s slip to their first defeat in seven games, despite Jay Simpson’s 18th league goal of the season.

While Gaffney’s second was a great strike, Payne believed both goals were preventable and despite playing well in periods of games, knows they have to cut out their mistakes if they are to keep themselves in and around the League Two Play-Off places.

It was the second game inside three days for the midfielder despite being stretchered off in the 1-1 draw with Yeovil Town, and the 24-year-old was as relieved as any that the injury was not as bad as first feared.
