Leyton Orient defender Elliot Omozusi insisted there is no cause for concern despite failing to win their opening two home games and believes a victory at Brisbane Road is not far away.

The O's were beaten at home to Chesterfield in their opener and failed to beat Walsall on Saturday in a forgettable 0-0 draw. 

But Omozusi said: "I'm not concerned. We played against Walsall over the last three or four years and we knew what kind of game it was going to be. It's always a tight match.

"They're not a bad side and they passed the ball well so we knew it was going to be tight. The most important thing is we didn't lose. Of course we wanted to take the three points and put on a more exciting performance but it's going to come. We're confident it will come."

Orient have recently played three away matches in a row including lengthy trips to Oldham and Plymouth. Omozusi admitted this did not make it easy for them against Walsall although he was pleased to be back playing in front of their own fans.

He said: "It was a tricky one really coming off the three away games. It was decent to be back home but it was a tight game and there was not much in it. If a couple of things broke to us in the box we could have had the win."
