Leyton Orient manager Mauro Milanese was made to rue his side gifting Coventry City a point through defensive errors in their 2-2 home draw with Coventry City.

Skipper Nathan Clarke’s slip led to Jim O’Brien netting the opener for the Sky Blues, before the O’s battled back and were in front after goals from Scott Cuthbert and Jay Simpson.

And just as they looked on course to pick up their first win at home this season, goalkeeper Gary Woods’ punch only found O’Brien who slotted home despite desperate attempts by the O’s defence to keep it out.

And Milanese was left frustrated by those ‘presents’ in what he thought otherwise was an improved performance.

“We played very well,” said Milanese.

“We deserved the three points and just for a few mistakes, a lack of luck and some accidents Coventry scored twice.

“Sometimes the difference between winning and drawing is very small and I thought we were bit unlucky.

“I don’t remember any other chances for Coventry. You cannot train for someone slipping on the floor and I feel sorry because of the effort put in by the whole team and this time we were very close to winning.

“I don’t want the lads to keep on giving other teams presents because of the position we are in and we are desperate for the three points. I don’t think Coventry could complain if we won the match.”
