Italian believes players have to deal with supporters voicing their frustration and concedes east Londoners have plenty to work on

Leyton Orient boss Alberto Cavasin believes his players have to accept the supporters voicing their frustration during matches.

The O’s suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Crewe Alexandra this afternoon to drop down to 23rd in League Two.

It is the lowest Orient have been since Francesco Becchetti took over the club in the summer of 2014 and several fans chanted for the Italian chairman to leave Brisbane Road during the contest with the Railwaymen.

“They are all football players with many years of experience under their belt. The players are as disappointed as the fans,” said Cavasin via a translator.

“If they were the ones in the stand they would think the same way as the supporters. This disappointment should stimulate us to do even more. This disappointment is not evil.”

Goals from George Cooper and Harry Davis during nine first half minutes ensured Crewe would claim all three points in east London.

After a bright opening half an hour, Orient faded badly after the opener and never looked like scoring causing supporters to chant ‘Becchetti out’ and ‘this is embarrassing’.

It was a hugely concerning performance and with O’s now in the bottom two, fans are fearful for the future.

Cavasin added: “The supporters obviously want their team to win and they want them to play good football and today this only happened for twenty minutes. This chanting is normal.

“This is just being a part of the team and the disappointment of the result because it is two months that the team continues to lose.”

Orient’s defeat this afternoon was their eighth at Brisbane Road in all competitions this season.

Since Cavasin’s appointment, they have claimed only one victory in five matches and lost four times. He said: “Obviously we concede goals and we’re not scoring enough even when playing with an offensive team.

“We need to find the balance between defence and offence because when we are breathing out of possession, the opposition team seem to always go for goal. We need to score more.”

The 60-year-old revealed the players didn’t do double training sessions every day last week and had Wednesday off.

When asked if the players needed to train more because they didn’t look fit in the second half against Crewe, Cavasin said: “The negative emotion of the result can make the players struggle more than they are suppose to.”
