Cooper on Leyton Orient v Swindon

"I thought we played really well again.

"For 75 minutes I thought we were outstanding. In the last 15 minutes we were not as good as we could have been - the game should have been over by then.

"Some of the football was amazing. They're young players and they're getting better and better.

"To come to places like this, which can be hostile, and deal with it is a big achievement for us."
