Russell Slade is preparing for a couple of nerve-wracking weeks after his Leyton Orient side threw away a two-goal lead against Yeovil to leave them fretting about their npower League One status.

Two goals from Kevin Lisbie had seemingly eased the pressure on the Londoners, but their opponents summoned up a late effort with Andrew Williams reducing the deficit before Jon Obika scored late into added time to tie the game at 2-2.

"We were on course for a much-needed win with eight minutes to go but we've not dealt with long balls from a very direct Yeovil side," Slade said. "There had been a lot of those all afternoon but unfortunately there were two occasions where we've not dealt with either the first or second phase.

"I thought we turned in a good professional performance up until then but at this moment in time, we don't seem able to keep the ball out of the net.

"We haven't marked well enough, we've been a bit naive and not picked up and it wasn't good enough. The second goal was a poor goal to concede, we should have been throwing our bodies on the line and been marking people at a crucial time of the game.

"We needed to be professional as I said, but we don't do anything easily here and we are going to have to go to Hartlepool next week and make sure that we get something from there. There is probably more pressure on Wycombe and Walsall than what there is on us, which is important. We just have to keep going to get us out of this situation."

Yeovil boss Gary Johnson was able to take satisfaction with the point that sealed the Glovers' League One status for next season.

"We weren't playing particularly well and we laid into the players a bit at half-time," Johnson admitted.

"We needed something out of the game after last week's poor performance and credit to the players, they showed great character in the second half.

"We've worked on a lot of set-plays which we thought would be very important and we looked very, very dangerous from our set plays. In the end, that's got us the two goals. The boys have battled well and in the end, it was a hard-fought draw which has kept us in this division mathematically which is fantastic."
