Frenchman eager to get the O’s moving up the table.

Leyton Orient may feel relieved to have finally ended their home hoodoo with Saturday’s first league win of the season, but midfielder Romain Vincelot insists there’s plenty of hard work ahead before they can think of challenging for ‘something interesting’.

The O’s saw off Crewe Alexandra 4-1 at the weekend thanks to goals from Gianvito Plasmati, Chris Dagnall, Dean Cox and David Mooney, while moving out of the relegation places in the process.

And while delighted to end the barren run at Brisbane Road, the 29-year-old knows they are still involved in a battle to edge their way clear of relegation places.

“It’s the first home win and we are in the middle of November so let’s not get carried away,” said Vincelot.

“There are a lot of things to do before we are maybe challenging for something interesting, but at the minute we just have to make sure we get out of the bottom few places and then we will see.

We just have to make sure we do the job and then we will see. Now we are looking forward and all we need is have great character like we did against Crewer and hopefully have something interesting to play for.

“We need to beat the teams that are in and around us in the table and put them behind and look for something further up.”

Saturday’s game was Vincelot’s second since returning from a knee injury picked up in the 0-0 home draw with MK Dons.

The Frenchman required minor surgery on October 18, but returned earlier than expected last weekend at Gillingham, much to his delight.

“I was really pleased with the fact that it wasn’t a long spell out,” he added. “Sometimes with the knee it can be a bit longer to comeback depending on how the recovery is.

“It’s only been two and a half weeks and I am really pleased with that. I normally come back from injury quite quick and it was quicker than the normal schedule.

“I did it for my shoulder and I have done it again for my knee so it was good. I didn’t take any risks and it was 100 per cent ready to go.”

Unfortunately Vincelot will miss the O’s trip to Bradford City this weekend after picking up his fifth booking of the season against Crewe on Saturday.
