League One: Shrewsbury 0 Leyton Orient 2

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade hailed his side for never taking their foot off the gas as they won 2-0 at Shrewsbury.

Strikes from Mathieu Baudry and a Kevin Lisbie penalty, after he earlier had a goal ruled out, stretched the east Londoners’ unbeaten run to four games in League One.

It also moved them to within seven points of the play-offs and sixth-placed capital rivals Brentford who lost 2-0 at Carlisle.

Slade said: “In the last five to 10 minutes we were still pressing them and that was excellent.

“They are a big side, a physical one, and we felt if we stopped crosses and set plays we were bright enough to open them up.

“Lisbie is onside and produced a fine finish and for it not to be given is a woeful decision, but his ability is great he is so elusive he could lose someone in a telephone box.”
