SLADE IN FOR PACY PE­TRASS-O

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

LEY­TON ORI­ENT’S near miss on pro­mo­tion to the Cham­pi­onship last year may not have been in vain after Michael Pe­trasso re­vealed his ad­mi­ra­tion for the O’s.

Ori­ent lost in the League One play-off fi­nal to Rother­ham in May but Pe­trasso, who has joined on a onemonth loan deal from Premier League new-boys Queens Park Rangers, says he was im­pressed by Rus­sell Slade’s out­fit.

“I’m very ex­cited to come to the club,” said the 19-yearold winger. “Ori­ent did very well last sea­son and caught my eye. Now I just want to help here in any way I can.

“I’m a very quick winger so hope­fully can bring some pace to the team.”
