Slade hails his comebacks kings

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade paid tribute to his players after they fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at home to Bournemouth. The Cherries had appeared to be coasting to victory thanks to a brace from Marc Pugh. Yet Jonathan Tehoue stepped off the bench to score twice in the last five minutes for Orient and leave Slade delighted. He said: "We've done well to get back from going to goals down. "The first to an early goal in the first half and then an early goal in the second-half and that's probably the hardest situation to come back from. "The only chance that Bournemouth had in the first half was the goal they scored. But they are a quality side, full of energy which we knew before a ball was kicked. "However, we kept plugging away and we weren't quite at our best and I accept that."
