The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

BARNET even­tu­ally cap­i­talised on some poor Ley­ton Ori­ent de­fend­ing to take the brag­ging rights in this Lon­don derby.

It was from an un­likely source, how­ever, with cen­tral de­fender Ri­cardo San­tos net­ting a brace. It was only his sec­ond game for the club af­ter join­ing from Peter­bor­ough United, but he looks a great Jan­uary ad­di­tion for the Bees.

How O’s could do with a cen­tre-back cast from a sim­i­lar mould af­ter con­ced­ing seven goals in their last two matches.

Be­fore the Ex­eter City de­feat on Mon­day, Ori­ent ap­peared to have turned a cor­ner, but now they seem back to square one and Andy Ed­wards is in ur­gent need of funds to boost the depth of the squad as they sit just four points clear of the rel­e­ga­tion zone.
