Yeovil boss Gary Johnson admitted his side were well beaten as they slid to a 4-1 defeat at Leyton Orient.

Goals from Ben Chorley and Ryan Brunt gave the O's a 2-0 lead at half-time and although Sam Foley reduced the deficit, Jimmy Smith and Kevin Lisbie completed the rout.

Johnson said: "When you let four goals in, you have to look at the defensive side of the team, not just your defence. We weren't winning any part of the pitch.

"Yes, we started off pretty poor in defence, we didn't win the battle in midfield and we certainly didn't win the battle up front either. We gave ourselves a bit of a chance in the second half but the third goal killed us.

"Before then, I thought that we might get an equaliser to really get us back in the game, but then the third went in.

"It would be quite easy at the moment for supporters, directors, management and press to lose faith in this group when you've been beaten 4-1 and it's your third defeat on the trot."
