STATS: Cox V Croft

30 April 2013

We take a look at the battle of the number 7's from Saturday's game against Oldham

Oldham’s Lee Croft has made some high-profile moves during his career, but Orient’s Dean Cox had the better of this battle of the number sevens. 

Cox finished the season in his trademark fashion, sending in a regular supply of crosses from the left wing while also switching play from deeper positions with numerous crossfield passes to right-winger Moses Odubajo. Heavily involved throughout, he helped set up a couple of dangerous attacks by moving infield to link up play and almost notched a late winner having switched wings after Lee Cook’s introduction, the best of his several efforts hitting the post.

Croft was out of sorts for much of his 70 minutes on the field. A couple of early shots could have yielded better rewards, but ambitious passes tended to go astray and he was booked after conceding a dangerous second-half free-kick in Oldham’s area. Ironically - perhaps spurred on by some barracking from the home fans - he then enjoyed his best spell of the game, tracking back and providing a good chance with an impressive right-wing dribble and cross. But it won’t be a match the on-loan winger remembers with much affection.
