Leyton Orient suffered their sixth consecutive loss in the league last Tuesday, against Morecambe, leaving the Londoners with zero points out of 18 in 2017.
The O’s were the better side but failed to convert any of their numerous chances into a goal. The visitors scored the only goal in the match with a fantastic strike from 30 yards out by Paul Mullin.
However, regardless of the result, Leyton Orient’s midfielder, Michael Collins believes that the team is on track to put an end to the current losing streak.
The 30-year-old midfielder told Rising East: ‘’Everybody is running themselves into the ground, we just need that little bit of luck, we just need a result and a result can change everything, and I’d like to think it is on the horizon, but it will take a lot of effort.’’
The east Londoners would have moved out of the relegation zone with a draw but were unfortunate to come away empty handed.
The team’s effort was recognized by the crowd and the players were applauded as they walked off the pitch after the final whistle.
Leyton Orient Manager, Danny Webb said: ‘’It’s always frustrating, especially for the home crowd, when you’re a goal down and you’ve played so well. The players are hurt, but there’s a structure and a plan in place of what we are trying to do and hopefully the results will turn.’’
The O’s are away at Yeovil on the weekend, and Webb has announced that Paul McCallum will travel with the team, whether he is fit or not.
Leyton Orient currently sit 23rd in the League Two table, only two points above Newport County, but having played one more game than the Welsh side.
A win on Saturday could potentially see the O’s move out of the relegation zone if Notts County fail to beat Cheltenham at Meadow Lane.
