Ling praises in-form Orient

Published Add your comment

Leyton Orient manager Martin Ling praised his side after they won 2-1 at Bradford to move into the third round of the FA Cup.

A 65th-minute goal from left-back Danny Granville sealed victory after Bantams striker Michael Boulding cancelled out Jason Demetriou's opener.

In-form Orient have won five of their last six matches and Ling said: "It has been a very good month for us after nine games without a win. We have put that bad run to bed."

Ling was particularly pleased with the result after losing defender Tamika Mkandawire through injury and striker Sam Parkin through suspension.

He added: "We had to make two changes but it didn't make any difference.

"We have found Jordan Spence on loan from West Ham and he did a good job in defence for us."
