Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade insisted their gameplan worked after a hard-earned 0-0 draw at League One title challengers Sheffield United.

The O's restricted the Blades to few chances at Bramall Lane after lining up with just Shaun Batt in attack. It was a welcome result and performance for Orient after a tough week featuring back-to-back league defeats and an exit in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy area final. 

Slade said: "It was a tight game, wasn't it, and we came with a certain gameplan. Even though we were with just the one striker we still wanted to create chances and we did. We were very much 4-3-3 when we were going forward and I thought we created a few really good openings.

"I think Shaun Batt had a great chance in the first period and then a shot from Romain Vincelot which was followed up by David Mooney were probably our best two chances and maybe we should have got ourselves a goal from that situation."
