Having returned to the fourth division in English football this season, the O’s have the opportunity to match a five game winning spree which dates back to the start of the 2015/16 season.
In that run, the O’s beat Barnet, Dagenham & Redbridge, Stevenage, Newport County and Bristol Rovers, winning every league game in August. With Plymouth Argyle and Carlisle United set to come this October, Orient could keep a 100% record this month, having beat Northampton Town, Walsall and Grimsby Town already.
After winning his final three games as Interim Head Coach, Ross Embleton feels like Orient have settled back into the Football League.
“I feel it’s been deserved. I was as critical of myself as I was anyone else in that month of September, when it felt like a real tough role to be in and a tough situation that we were in as a Club.
I think today optimises what the group is all about. I think todays performance, along with the backing of an incredible following, we showed that real presence. It really felt like Orient are fully settled back in the Football League now.”
