Slade urges O's to finish job

Russell Slade called on Leyton Orient to finish the job at Wembley after their League One play-off semi-final win over Peterborough.

Second-half goals from Dean Cox and Chris Dagnall put Orient in control of the second leg and although Conor Washington pulled one back in stoppage time for Posh, the hosts held out for a 3-2 aggregate success.

"I'm a very proud man, the players were inspirational and so were the crowd," said O's boss Slade.

"I've never seen anything like that in the four-and-a-half years since I have been here.

"It was like a football club being reborn, there was a real belief around the stadium, a real togetherness which is what was needed.

"It was a fantastic night and I'm sure it will live on in people's minds, we've achieved something remarkable already by getting to Wembley but there is still so much more work to do.

"We are not going there just to make the numbers up. We are going there to get to the next level."
