Hearn sets Orient play-off target

Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn tells BBC London he would be disappointed if they do not at least finish in the League One play-off places this season.

The O's are top of the table after making their best-ever start to a season and Hearn admits the side are "punching above their weight".

Speaking ahead of Saturday's match at Tranmere Rovers, Hearn also reveals manager Russell Slade has a buy-out clause in the new contract he signed in the summer.

However, even if there is interest in his services from other clubs, he believes Slade will remain at Brisbane Road as he "would love to achieve promotion against all the odds".
