O’s manager reflects on 1-0 home defeat to Notts County last night.

Leyton Orient boss Fabio Liverani believed there were only two things his side didn’t do right last night as they slipped to a 1-0 home defeat against Notts County.

Balint Bajner’s 20th minute strike was enough for the O’s to remain winless in 2015 and routed to the bottom of League One.

However, Liverani felt his side were made to rue a lack of killer instinct in front of goal.

“I think it was a game where we conceded a couple of chances to them at the beginning of the game, one they missed and one they scored,” said Liverani.

“But to be honest they are the only two things that we didn’t do right. The rest of the game we tried to attack and created many chances, but unfortunately the ball didn’t go in.”

Liverani made six changes to the side which lost 4-1 to Scunthorpe United on January 31, but substituted top goalscorer Chris Dagnall early in the second half for Shaun Batt, and that caused fans to voice their displeasure with the O’s boss.

“I just wanted more depth in our play and I saw Dagnall was a bit tired,” added Liverani.

“I consider Dagnall to be an important player and he has always played since I came here.

“I wanted a fresh player that could attack the channels and in fact Batt created a few dangerous chances at the end.”

Liverani also revealed Dean Cox was on the bench because of illness, and wasn’t fit enough to complete 90 minutes.

“Cox was unwell on Sunday and he only trained partially on Monday,” he added.

“He is a very important player for us, but he wasn’t in the right condition to start the game. “
