Orient have won five out of five to sit proudly at the summit of League One but Saturday's clash with Notts County was called off due to the Magpies' international call-ups.
"We wish we were playing on Saturday because of the momentum of the group," said Slade.
"With the spirit we've got and the football we are playing at the moment we are looking sharp.
"We look as though we can get a goal and it's disappointing we aren't playing on Saturday. Winning is a good habit to have and we've worked hard to get it."
