Tilson rues missed chances

21 Jan 2009 - 11:40:37

Southend United boss Steve Tilson claimed his side deserved all three points from Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Leyton Orient.

James Walker netted a stoppage time equaliser for the Shrimpers, but Tilson felt his side should have been celebrating a victory rather than just a stalemate.

"It was pleasing to see James score at the end, but I thought we should have taken all three points," he told the club's official website.

"You do fear that you have lost the game at such a late stage, but at the same time I'm disappointed because I feel we should have won.

"We had plenty of chances in front of goal and we haven't taken them.

"Orient took the lead early on, but other than that I don't really remember them having too many other chances in front of goal.

"We had some good opportunities ourselves, which I felt we could have done better with."
