Slade expects Orient response

Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade is confident his side will bounce back from Saturday's setback against promotion rivals Brentford.

Orient slipped out of the automatic promotion spots after the 1-0 London derby defeat and are now two points behind the Bees, who also have two games in hand.

The O's head to Walsall on Saturday and while Slade knows they face a tough task to reclaim their place in the top two, he feels he has a group of players who will not give up.

"It's going to be tough," said Slade.

"But they are a good group and I trust them, I believe in them and we will go out and fight for as many points as we can.

"It will be difficult to lift them but that's my job."
