The January signing continues to impress with his performances. The deep lying midfielder bagged his first goal for the O’s against Stevenage, poking home Josh Wright’s free kick in the six yard box.
The Mali international was unfortunate to see his header marker as an own goal against Oldham, after meeting Jordan Maguire-Drew’s cross.
Clay started all five of Orient’s fixtures in February and helped his team pick up eight points along the way. The number eight was awarded MOTM against Macclesfield and Oldham for his stand out performances, displaying exemplary work ethic and desire out on the field.
Clay provided James Brophy’s goal against Macclesfield; a neat through ball in-between full back and centre back; unlocking the defence and allowing Brophy to smash home.
The 25-year-old has went from strength to strength at left back. Brophy has past experience on the left hand side of defence but has shone of late, looking comfortable defensibly whilst still packing an attacking threat.
His exceptional pace up and down the flank came into play for his goal against the Silkmen. Lapping his defensive marker, Brophy met Clay’s through ball and drilled home first time.
