First-half goals by Dean Cox and Moses Odubajo, the latter making his first league start, gave the O's only their sixth home win of the season.

Reece Gray pulled a goal back for Rochdale but Orient held on to record the double over their opponents, who return to npower League Two after two seasons at the higher level.

"All the players have been told who is staying and who is going although I'm not sure whether the club have released the news yet," he said.

"The manager (John Coleman) and I have already started the work towards next season, in fact it started a couple of weeks ago.

"We've got targets, we need to rebuild a different ethic of how to approach games. It seems that since we've been here whenever we get out under pressure, we concede a goal and then another."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
