Leyton Orient manager Geraint Williams praised his players for the good habits they have acquired after striker Adrian Patulea fired them to a 1-0 win over Brighton in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
The Romanian forward popped up with an 88th-minute goal to secure the Os a third win in four games.
"We said before the game that we have got into some good habits of late, collecting clean sheets and collecting chances. And if we keep doing that we will win many more," Williams said.
"Patulea took the goal well but it was an up and down night for him. I think he was a little too keen to impress and there are times when he has to realise there are other players in better positions.
"The one thing about a goalscorer is that they will never be afraid to keep getting in there and at the end he took his chance very well.
"There is more than one way to score a goal. If you can do it with fine passing football, great.
"But sometimes route one is the simplest way. James Scowcroft made a great flick on and Adrian moved on to finish it off.
"There are all sorts of ways to score goals and we will take that one."
