Brown salutes defensive duo

Jason Brown has praised the hard work of Leyton Orient's make-shift centre-back pairing. The on-loan Blackburn goalkeeper put in an outstanding performance to preserve the Londoners' lead in a 2-1 win at Tranmere Rovers, but deflected the plaudits to Aaron Brown and Elliot Omozusi who played together at centre-half for the first time. "Brownie and Elliot came in and were both fantastic for us," Brown told the club's official website. "With those two in front of me I felt very comfortable and it shows from the result we got. "We expected Tranmere to come at us but I felt that the back four dealt with them fantastically. "Once or twice I had to help them out but that's my job, and I think it was a job well done for all of us. "The result was the most important thing and we picked up three points so I'm delighted."
