Manager Russell Slade lauded his players in the wake of Leyton Orient's crushing 3-0 win over Swindon.

First-half goals from Dean Cox, Alex Revell and skipper Stephen Dawson gave Orient the points and extended their unbeaten run to 11 games, much to Slade's delight.

"Although we were a little flattered to be three goals up at half time, we really did take out chances well," he said.

"I have to be happy with they way thing are going and we have got to keep our momentum."

Captain Stephen Dawson added: "This was an important win and we have to be very happy with our performance.

"I know our fans are talking about the forthcoming cup match against Arsenal but as far as I'm concerned, our first aim is to stay in this league and concentrate on winning our next two league matches before that tie.

"If we can do that we may be able to push on for a place in the play-offs. I know a lot of hard work lies ahead of us but our confidence is high and we are looking forward to the challenge."
