Slade: Strikers must find form

Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade is hoping his strikers rediscover the goalscoring touch in time for the play-offs.

Kevin Lisbie and David Mooney have scored 32 goals between them this season but neither has found the net in the last six matches.

Instead it was left to winger Dean Cox to hit the target in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Sheffield United.

"Fortunately we all contribute," said Slade. "That was Coxy's 13th of the season and Moses Odubajo on the other side has helped helped himself to 10.

"So we have got goal threats all over the pitch which is very important

"Strikers' form will drift in and out, we just need them to return to form in terms of scoring sooner rather than later.

"But Lisbie's individual performance up front was excellent, at 35. He looked more like 25."
