Winning their fourth round tie at Swansea City has not only earned the O’s a dream fifth round tie with Arsenal, but now Russell Slade has been awarded the F&C Investments Performance of the Week Award for the win at the Liberty Stadium.

Russell is fully deserving of the award and a lot of the credit for Orient’s good form, including their shock cup wins at Norwich and Swansea, has to go to him.

The League Managers Association (LMA) panel, including LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson and Sir Alex Ferguson, decided the winner and Slade was presented with the specially engraved crystal football for the 2-1 win. He will also feature on Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday tomorrow.

Do you think Russell Slade deserves to win the award? Leave your thoughts below….
