Despite taking the lead against Carlisle – who finished with 10 men – Danny Webb’s first game in charge ended in yet another defeat for Leyton Orient. This meant Orient remained in the relegation zone whereas the Cumbrians are sitting pretty in the automatic promotion positions.

Webb was impressed with what he saw against a side he feels will ‘breeze’ it into an automatic promotion finish this season though. Orient kept going with the boss saying he could seen Carlisle were concerned and thought the O’s would get something.

Commenting after this 2-1 defeat Webb told the East London & West Essex Guardian

‘Against a team that I think are going to breeze it in terms of getting in the top three, I thought they kept going. And the fact I saw their manager on the side panicking and I think even he thought we would get something from the game.’

The boss wants to see a similar performance against Morecambe tonight as Orient again have a chance to climb out of the relegation zone.

However, Webb was keen to point out that as much as a similar performance to that shown against Carlisle would – in his opinion – see Orient beat Morecambe he doesn’t want to see an anti-climax.

‘That game is massive and we say we played well against Carlisle so Morecambe is going to be a breeze. I have been there before, playing against top teams and saying this is good and then you going into the next game is the biggest anti-climax ever.’

Webb added his approach to each game – and the training between – will be no different whatever the Orient result.

‘We have got to make sure we approach the game the same, and my advice to the players is whatever happens on match day, the next day`s training will be the same if we have won 3-0 or lose 3-0.’

Confidence has been low at Brisbane Road with little to cheer about with Webb is looking to boost this again. That should get the players back to a place where they enjoy coming to work, which they probably haven’t for a while.

He finished.

‘Because I think a lot of these lads have stopped enjoying coming to work, to a degree, like you would with any team down the bottom. You lose confidence, and the atmosphere isn`t great. And it shouldn`t be as we are down the bottom but Monday morning I want them all to come in lively, ready to go again and hopefully Tuesday we can get something on the board.’
