Slade on the brink at Orient

UNDER-PRESSURE Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade admits the club’s new owner Francesco Becchetti has laid it on the line and it is win or bust as his side visit Notts County tonight.

Orient have endured a difficult start to the season and lie one point above the League One drop zone after posting a solitary win from their opening six games.

And Italian businessman Becchetti, who purchased Orient in the summer, has left Slade in no doubt about how quickly he expects a revival in the club’s fortunes.

“The president has been honest enough to tell me we have one game to sort it out,” said Slade. “The situation is we need to get a win or that will be curtains.”
