McAnuff on Orient v Gillingham

Leyton Orient midfielder Jobi McAnuff told BBC London 94.9:

"It was a bad day at the office in terms of conceding goals and being 3-1 down.

"But there was great character shown from the boys to get back into it. We could have maybe nicked it in the end.

"We've looked a lot more solid as a team. There's no individual blame, but that's something that we need to look at and make sure we're a lot harder to score against for the rest of the season."
