Luton 2 Leyton Orient 2 - Views from the Bench

A draw wasn`t in the script but in the end it was, as they look towards securing a promotion play-off place, it was appreciated.

Following the game, both managers spoke to the media.

Paul Hart, the Hatters assistant coach, took the microphone for the Hatters, with Paul remarking,

"We didn`t start the second half brightly enough and we paid a price for it.

"I don`t think anyone would have expected that. We weren`t complacent about the game.

"I certainly felt we gave Leyton Orient due respect but at this stage of the season, results like these do happen."


They do and I have to say they don`t do a lot of good to the old-ticker.

As for the Leyton Orient manager, Omer Riza, he had this to say,

"The talk before the game was, 'don`t let this be the day we are gone`, because we`ve got four more games and it`s hard to play in those when that happens.

"We`ve given ourselves another game to fight. We have to fight another day and that`s a bonus."


It`ll be interesting to see if Leyton Orient can make a late surge to retain their Football League status, but it`s looking to be a huge ask.
