Italian reveals chairman Francesco Becchetti made O’s players do double training sessions this week

Alberto Cavasin admitted it felt good to pick up his first victory as Leyton Orient manager and then revealed chairman Francesco Becchetti made the team do double training sessions in the week leading up to the Hartlepool United match.

It looked bleak for the O’s at half time against the Pools as Josh Laurent’s stoppage time strike gave the hosts a 1-0 lead.

But Sandro Semedo levelled in the 55th minute before Ollie Palmer’s brace gave the visitors all three points.

“We have to still do a lot because we conceded too easily so we need to work on that,” said Cavasin via a translator.

“The main recipe is work and work! Even if the chairman doesn’t impose us doing two training sessions a day, even with one training session less, we are convinced it can be helpful to put everything into place.

“But if the chairman says two training sessions a day, we will do two training sessions a day.”

What appeared to make the difference at Victoria Park was a renewed confidence after Semedo’s leveller.

The Orient squad looked full of belief and Palmer continued his encouraging run of form with a brace.

Both goals were once again dedicated to his cousin Frankie, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.

“It feels good to win. We didn’t touch the bottom yet! The first half is part of the past and that wasn’t just when I arrived, but even before my arrival,” said Cavasin.

“Two months of not winning and getting results gives us a very tough moment. Going one goal down at the end of the first half and going into the changing room with this result wasn’t an easy or simple situation to face.

“But we managed to do better in the second half and we weren’t at our top level, but it was probably just us being scared when it went to 1-1.

“The first 10 minutes of the second half the opponent did better than us, but then we scored and I saw the team finding some more oxygen. They started to run their socks off.”

Orient’s victory lifts them to 19th in the table and onto 15 points from their 14 matches in League Two.

It was the O’s first win since September 3 and definitely helps lift the gloom at Brisbane Road after a tough start to the campaign.
