Russell Slade: Enjoying terrific win

But Slade issued a cautionary warning as goals from Scott Cuthbert, Jamie Ness, Kevin Lisbie and Shaq Coulthirst kept the O's in secfond place in the table.

"These are great times for us at the moment, things are going well, but we've got to make sure that we stay on track, stay grounded in everything we do and tackle every game with the same attitude," Slade said.

"We want to be strong at home and it was important to us to get the win.

"Our attitude and energy we showed were fantastic and we created so many chances.

"We had to show patience before we went ahead, but there were a host of chances that went begging before we capitalised and got ourselves four goals.

"We set out to win the game, we would have been happy to win it 1-0, but the fact that we got four goals without conceding is fantastic.

"That was very important to me that although we were creating chances, we kept the back door locked.

"What also pleased me is that we haven't been scoring too many goals from set-plays, but we've now scored four in the last three or four games so I've got to be happy with that.

"All three of our substitutes made an impact and that's important."

Carlisle goalkeeper Greg Fleming had pulled off three excellent saves on his league debut to frustrate Orient before he was beaten just before half-time whenCuthbert thundered home a header from a Lloyd James corner.

Two minutes after the break Jamie Ness, on-loan from Stoke, scored with a left-footed volley after another James set-piece.

Goals from Kevin Lisbie after 66 minutes and Tottenham loanee Shaq Coulthirst in added time completed the rout, leaving the visitors boss Graham Kavanagh with much to think about in the week ahead.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
