Slade: Team boosted by second win
Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade wants his side to climb the table after lifting themselves off bottom spot with consecutive wins.
Like they did against Preston last week, the Os had to do it the hard way at Scunthorpe as they came from behind to triumph 3-2.
Slade said: "Going a goal behind was not ideal and I felt sick at half-time because we were much better than that. I knew this was a game we could win if only we believed in it enough.
"Two great goals by Kevin Lisbie got us in front and another good header from Scott Cuthbert should have made it safe.
"But then we let Scunthorpe back in it and made life so difficult for ourselves again. But that's Leyton Orient isn't it. We just have to get on with it."
He added: "Another win next Saturday against Bury could lift us out of the bottom four and help us dig ourselves out of the hole we have got ourselves in. We don't want to be down near the bottom of the table. It's disappointing for everyone to be there. But back-to-back victories should boost the confidence and that is something we need by the bucketful."
