FORMER Leyton Orient striker, Peter Kitchen, certainly believes that the O’s are drinking in the ‘last chance saloon’ as they bid to turn their season around and pull away from the foot of the Sky Bet League Two table.
Speaking to Yellow Sport ahead of Saturday’s trip to fellow strugglers, Yeovil Town, Kitchen said: “The O’s wasted a couple of opportunities to halt their alarming slump, losing back-to-back home matches against Carlisle United and Morecambe, heaping more pressure on themselves in the process.
“New Manager, Danny Webb, has certainly engendered some spirit into his young, inexperienced group of players. They will feel hard done by having not taking at least a point from the Morecambe game, but they have now lost 6 games on the trot and don’t look capable of stopping the rot.”
Kitchen was hopeful that the O’s could put an end to their slump when they travel west, adding: “Yeovil Town will be a very stiff test. However, if they could snatch a point from the game it could give the players some relief and hope that they can turn it around. They are about to embark on several encounters against their closest rivals towards the bottom of the table. This is a vital period that will undoubtedly decide the O’s fate.
