Brisbane Road, Leyton.
Saturday 15th October 2011.
Dean Cox's goal in the first half was enough to ensure a third consecutive win for The O's and leave Russell Slade 'absolutely delighted'.
The match itself was hardly a classic and won't live in the memory for long but one goal was enough to keep Orient's unbeaten run going and allow Orient to make it a maximum of 9 points from three games in the month of October.
Orient were unchanged from the side that started last week's 3-2 victory at Scunthorpe United. There was just one change to the Orient bench with George Porter recovering enough from a dead leg to be on the bench.
One of the earliest chances of the game fell to the balaclava wearing Nigerian at the heart of the Bury defence, Efe Sodje, who's glancing header was cleared off the line by Matt Spring. Orient then started to apply some pressure on the Shakers' defence as David Mooney fired straight at Trevor Carson in the Bury goal and Kevin Lisbie had a shot deflected for a corner.
The Orient goal looked more likely despite neither team applying huge amounts of pressure on the opposition goal and it came in first half stoppage time. David Mooney broke down the right and fired in a cross that was finished neatly by Dean Cox's right foot.
Bury came out and tested Lee Butcher a few times in the second half with the closest being Michael Jones' header that hit the crossbar.
Bury's loanee from Liverpool David Amoo gave Charlie Daniels a real test and after some neat footwork he set up Steven Schumacher who shot from outside the area but Butcher had it covered.
Scott Cuthbert nearly turned in a Schumacher cross just before the end but luckily for Cuthbert and the Orient, the ball heading straight into the North Stand, not the top corner of Butcher's net.
Orient's best chance of the half fell to Mooney, who's free kick went marginally over.
A game that we were lucky to win, maybe, however, that is the sign of a good team when you win well despite not especially playing well or deserving to win.
