Crewe boss Steve Davis felt his side deserved their point after a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient.

Byron Moore equalised for the vistors after Lee Cook fired Orient, who had already hit the woodwork twice, into the lead.

"I thought that we competed well and I was pleased with the draw at the end," said Davis. "I thought it was a decent game. It's a tough place to come to, we never seem to get a lot when we come down south but we've got a point and I'm happy with that.

"We did better once we scored the equaliser. Up until then, it had been a case of staying in the game to be honest. We had got lucky with them hitting the post twice and we could have been two or three down. They came very strongly at us at the start of the game and we certainly rode our luck in that period.

"But once we back on level terms, we then started to get back in the game and we showed a lot more confidence and grew into the game.

"We've been encouraging Byron Moore to get in a that back post many, many times, he had only done it once before and scored and now he's done it again, so maybe it might finally twig that he's got to get in at that back post!"

By contrast, Orient boss Russell Slade could not believe his team had not taken all three points. "For me, we should have been four or 5-1 up in the first period," he said.

"I thought that we were absolutely excellent, we were forced to make changes but after some of the football we played and some of the openings we created, the game should have been out of sight by half-time for sure.

"That's a lucky side in that away changing-room at half-time knowing that they had gone in at 1-1 and they are still in a football match because they should have been dead and buried.

"Our new player Charlie MacDonald was only denied by a post on his debut, I don't know how that stayed out and we've hit the woodwork twice. Their keeper was their best player."
