ORI MOONEY POST PORT VALE

Leyton Orient striker David Mooney speaks to BBC London 94.9:

"It was a massive win, in the first 25 minutes of the first-half I thought we were excellent and we started the second-half really well and managed to get three really good goals in the second half, so long may that continue."

"I've played in a number of positions this season, I haven't really been able to get any fluency in my game. But today, on a personal level I thought I played well."
