We Must Learn And Learn Fast. Steve Davis Says Orient Were Too Soft At Sutton

Newcomers Leyton Orient must learn from their first day defeat at Sutton United as they got a taste for what the National League is all about yesterday lunchtime.

That is according to Steve Davis, the club’s new manager, who saw the U’s lose 2-0 after under-performing on their introduction to Non-League football.

Davis hinted that his team were too easily bullied by Sutton but did say his side should have had a first half penalty.

Orient play Solihull Moors on Tuesday night in front of their own fans and the manager is craving the correct reaction.

“It’s a disappointing start, no question about that,” the manager said after the contest at Gander Green Lane which was played in high winds and heavy rain for long periods of the match.

“We didn’t make the most of a lot of set pieces we won and we weren’t as brave as we should have been. We struggled to create enough chances but it’s still early days.

“It’s now about how we respond. We need to use this defeat as a learning curve and look to improve quickly.”

Davis added: “The plastic pitch was not an excuse. We won’t be using it as one either.

“We found it very difficult to break a very determined Sutton side and we’ve got to find a way of doing that as teams are going to try to frustrate us this season.”
