Russell Slade bemoaned his Leyton Orient side's failure to take their chances on Friday as Notts County claimed a 3-0 win at Brisbane Road.
The O's suffered an 11th home defeat of the campaign which leaves them hovering just four points above the League One drop zone.
But Slade is confident Orient can stay up, as long as they start taking their chances.
"I thought we created a bundle of chances, particularly in the first period and even in the second half Jimmy Smith had a wonderful chance and Kevin Lisbie had a chance too," Slade said.
"I thought that we created enough chances to be comfortably in front and for 65 minutes we were bossing the game, playing well and playing with a swagger."
