Edinburgh Calls For Orient To Keep On Improving

Leyton Orient head coach Justin Edinburgh believes his side didn't reach the required level during their FA Trophy win but was full of praise for one individual.

The O's find themselves six points off the relegation zone and looking to move away as quickly as possible, they next face FC Halifax Town on Saturday, writes Tom Feaheny.

Last weekend they secured a 2-1 victory at Bognor Regis Town after extra-time with Josh Koroma's goal in the 105th minute being the difference.

“There are positives to take for some individuals like George Elokobi, to get him 60 minutes with no ill affect," Edinburgh told the club's website.

“We made hard work of the game, we were below the standards that we have set but the score line is what is important and I was pleased with that."

Edinburgh was quick to praise one player who stood out for the side.

“Jobi McAnuff was outstanding, I said to the players in there, for someone who has achieved what he has done, the age he is, that’s an example and standard that them players have got to meet every week."
