The O's surrendered their 100 per cent record when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Walsall on Saturday.

But they remain three points clear at the top of League One thanks in no small part to the likes of Scott Cuthbert and Shaun Batt, who were major doubts before the match.

"There were one or two struggling," said Slade.

"Shaun had a virus, he was very sick for 48 hours. Jayden Stockley had a fitness test in the morning and Scotty was 50-50 with a hip injury.

"But they are a good group, they put themselves up and they wanted to get out there."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
