O’s boss delighted to send O’s fans home happy.

Leyton Orient manager Mauro Milanese feels the O’s are heading in the right direction after picking up their first home league win of the season with a 4-1 victory over fellow strugglers Crewe Alexandra.

Goals from Gianvito Plasmati, Chris Dagnall, Dean Cox and David Mooney did the damage for the O’s who put in a much more assured performance at Brisbane Road as they moved up to 19th place in the table and two points above the relegation zone.

And with that following on the back of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over Northampton Town, and the 2-2 draw against Coventry in front of their home fans, Milanese has much more confidence in his side going forward.

“I think we are heading in the right direction, especially at home,” said Milanese.

“Against Coventry we drew although we were 2-1 in front. We won 2-0 in the JPT and again 4-1 today so we are more confident now at home then we were before.”

Milanese admitted there was some anxious moments when Anthony Grant pulled one back for the Railwaymen to make it 3-1, but was pleased his side we able to come out on top having had a full week of training before the game.

“It was very important to win. Having a free week helped us prepare for the game very well,” he added.

“The lads were fantastic during the week and I was confident today that we could perform well and I am happy the supporters can enjoy this first league victory at home.

“It is normal when we win that we work better and are more confident. But at 3-0 when they scored we were a bit scared and we lost a little bit of confidence straight away.

“One goal can change the game and that happened at 3-0 so I need to work a bit more with the players.”
