Russell Slade: Pleased with his charges

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."

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
