Skipper keen to get back to winning ways
Orient skipper Mathieu Baudry is hoping a positive result at Morecambe can be the start of another good run of results for the O’s.
Ian Hendon’s side have picked up two solid draws over Oxford and Luton in their last two fixtures, coming from behind in both as well.
And while disappointed that the wins haven’t come of late, he insists if the little errors are cut out, then they are more than capable of going on another undefeated run – just as they did at the start of the season.
“It is frustrating that the wins aren’t coming,” he told leytonorient..com. “The attitude and the spirit is here, but it just isn’t falling for us at the moment. If we keep that spirit up the wins will come.
“Everyone is working hard with the staff and everyone is pulling in the same direction. We are still in a good position and we just need to carry on and if we get one win I feel we can go on a run like we did at the start of the season.
“It’s not falling for us at the moment but we still haven’t lost many games and that has been important, particularly in the last two games where we have picked up points against teams that are going to be in and around us come the end of the season. We are working really well and hard with the gaffer and we are all fully behind the manager.”
The O’s skipper is happy with the amount of chances the side are creating, and have the top goalscorer in the league with Jay Simpson, who goes into the game with 11 goals for the campaign.
And while Orient have the top individual scorer, they come up against the side tomorrow who have scored the most goals in the top four divisions.
“Jay has been great and he is working hard for the team but all the forwards are working hard and I am sure the goals will come for the likes of Ollie, John and Scott,” said Baudry. “We are still in a good position and we need to remain calm.
“We haven’t conceded too many chances but it’s been little lapses in some games that have cost us and every little mistake we have made has been punished. Defensively I think we have conceded too many goals but we need to just carry on and keep working on the little details. ”
