Slade takes it in his stride
Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade had no complaints with Anthony Griffiths' late dismissal in his side's 1-1 draw at Crewe in League One.
Matt Tootle fired Crewe into an early lead on Saturday with only his second goal for the club, but Martin Rowlands smashed a superb first-half equaliser and the Londoners will be aggrieved they did not make their dominance pay in the second period.
Griffith saw red in stoppage time after a late lunge on Luke Murphy earned him his second booking at Gresty Road.
Slade said: "They were both bookings. He was a bit silly for the second one. It was a very open game from first to last and both teams were trying to win it.
"Crewe started the better - they're the best starters in the league as they showed at Stevenage. But we had a fantastic 20 minutes in the second half when we rained crosses in but couldn't convert.
"It was a great goal from Martin - he hit it really well from the edge of the box and it flew into the corner."
