Russell Slade: Not giving up the chase

First-half goals from Jimmy Smith and David Mooney kept the promotion dream alive although the Orient boss acknowledges that they are relying on other sides coming up short.

"We still have a chance of the play-offs. We are four points away from it, we have four games to go and other teams have got games in hand," Slade said.

"But they've got to win them and it could make it very difficult for us to get in but if other teams can't muster up those points, we're happy to take their place.

"We had to dig in, conditions were not great, the pitch was horrendous, there was a swirling wind and it wasn't easy. You have to give Bury because I thought at times they played some really sensible football on the surface.

"They got off to a better start than us and could have been two goals up before we went ahead but it is all about putting the ball in the back of the net and when we got our opportunities, we scored.

"They were two scrambled goals but I like to see those in the six-yard box with people going in but there were other chances for us to improve that score.

"We had two central defenders taken off with injuries but we still kept a clean sheet and that's got to be pleasing."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
