REACTION: Edwards - 'The better side won'

access_time 5 years ago

Manager Andy Edwards was left disappointed as his O’s side conceded yet again early in the second half to fall to a 2-0 defeat at Mansfield Town.

Having gone into the break goalless, Mansfield pounced on a sloppy restart from Orient to take the lead after three minutes through Ben Whiteman, before bagging a second through Danny Rose nine minutes later.

The defeat sees Orient slip into the Sky Bet League Two relegation zone following Notts County’s late victory against Crawley Town, and Edwards admitted his side gave themselves a mountain to climb with the manner of the goals conceded.
