Spring believes relegation battle could go down to the wire
Orient skipper Matt Spring insists his side have got to get something out of today’s game at Exeter City.
The O’s have lost five of their last seven matches and are now just four points above the drop zone.
Spring said: “The Exeter game is doubly important, if we don’t get anything out of that, we are going to be deep in it.
“We have got to go there and get something. It doesn’t matter how we do it, we have just got to get something from the game.”
The midfielder says the club have not set any targets.
“We just need as many points as we can. Four points should keep us safe. It will go the wire I think.
“We have just got to get some points on the board and if we can’t win, we have to make sure we don’t lose,” he said.
