Slade holding on to his hat
Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade is bracing himself for a testing run-in after his side lost 3-1 at Sheffield United.
Kevin Lisbie put Orient ahead in the 12th minute following a long upfield punt from goalkeeper Jamie Jones before Lee Williamson's 42nd-minute equaliser.
Michael Doyle put the Blades in front in the 54th minute from 20 yards and Ched Evans scored his 35th goal of the season after Orient's Ryan Dickson had been sent off in the 61st minute for a wild challenge on Williamson.
Slade said: "I was quite pleased with the first-half. To be 1-1 at half-time was respectable enough and it gave us something to build on. We came to make it difficult for Sheffield United. We weren't going to roll over and make it easy for them."
Slade, whose side are three points above the drop zone with three games to go, added: "We're on a losing streak at the moment, but the effort is there and the attitude is there. We just need to concentrate a little bit more and tighten up a little bit more to get over the line.
"It's not going to be an easy game against Yeovil next week because they've been beaten quite heavily today and Gary Johnson will be looking for a reaction to that."
