Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month for August.

After a perfect month, with five wins out of five, including three away from home, Orient maintained last season's momentum.

Slade has his side playing with style, confidence and attacking flair, with 13 goals scored and just two conceded.

Former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel and he said: "Russell Slade's men maintain the only 100 per cent record in The Sky Bet Football League after their great start to the season.

"Scoring 13 goals certainly makes Leyton Orient a team you would want to go and watch."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins added: "Leyton Orient were fancied in some quarters for League 1 this season and they have got off to a dream start.

"Russell Slade has been allowed to add a couple of key players over the summer to an already solid squad and this continuity looks to be paying off."
