Ling Foresees…Forest V Leeds!

Having just watched his side thoroughly outplayed by Leeds United, Leyton Orient boss Martin Ling believes the playoff promotion place will be battled over by the league’s two fallen giants.

Goals from Huntington and Beckford sealed the 3 points that Leeds United needed to move back into playoff contention, despite may we had (haven’t mentioned this in a while) starting the season on -15 points.

Ling believes that Nottingham Forest, like Leeds have the sufficient stature and squad quality to definitely take up 2 of the 4 playoff slots up for grabs.

“I think Leeds will be in the play-offs now without doubt.

“It's a bit of a lottery but Leeds have got enough to do it. But then Nottingham Forest’s supporters would probably say they’ve got enough as well. It'll be very interesting because they'll definitely be two of the four teams in there.”

Turning his attention to the Orient V Leeds match, Ling conceded that the tie had been perhaps one-sided:

“It was men against boys really.”

“They moved the ball better than us and had more purpose to their play. Let’s be honest, the best team won and they showed the gulf in class.”
