John Sheridan is still wondering where the next goal is coming from as his team went down 1-0 again at Leyton Orient, Charlie Daniels scoring the only goal of the game. Sheridan's men have now gone six League games without a win and are situated perilously close to the relegation area.

He told Latics World, "It's disapponting not to get anything. There were quite a few chances in the game and we created one or two good opportunities, but our big problem is we just can't score goals. It's a massive problem, because we are not going to win anything if we can't score goals. Again, I think we matched a decent team in good form in Orient, but we keep getting beaten by the odd goal. That's our main problem, we can't put the ball in the net."

"Gary Mac had a couple of chances, Neal's had one off the line and Craig's had a couple of opportunities too. We're not getting that rub of the green. We definitely should have had a penalty for handball, too, but that's life. We must stay together, get on with it and try and get out of the position we're in. Three points out of 18 is relegation form, and I say that we should have got this and we should have got that, but at the end of the day we've not got anything, so we have to fight and try to get out of it."

"It's a terrific strike for their goal, but we've given the ball away and switched off. They score a great goal on their first attack and it's a kick in the teeth for us, but we've got to battle on. I don't think our performance was too bad against a team who are flying high, and if we keep playing well hopefully we'll get that bit of luck and score a goal. They broke at the end as we were pushing for an equaliser, but overall I thought we were maybe even the better side, but we won't get anything if we don't score. I said these three away games would be tough and Tranmere will be just as difficult. We'll go there thinking we can get something from the game and hopefully we will."
