COLCHESTER United boss Aidy Boothroyd hailed his side after they managed to grind out a second consecutive 1-0 victory.
The U's beat Leyton Orient 1-0 at Brisbane Road courtesy of Kayode Odejayi's second half header to move up to third in the Leaguie One table.
The result means Boothroyd has now gone seven games undefeated since taking over the club, while his team have kept five clean sheets in that spell.
"It was a hard win and I'm pleased because Leyton Orient are a good side," said Boothroyd.
"This game could have gone either way, but we managed to keep the clean sheet and get the goal."

Odejayi's goal was his fourth in three matches for the U's, but the Nigerian was guilty of three missed chances in the first half.
"When you don't take your chances you are always worried that you might go home with nothing, but we managed to ride our luck and defended well.
"My job is to win matches when we are not playing particularly well. You probably only play well for eight or nine matches a season and the rest of the time you've got to learn to win in other ways."
The only negatives to come of the game for the Essex side were a potentially serious knee injury sustained by John White and a more minor knock for Kevin Lisbie.
Boothroyd said: "That was the only bad thing to come out of the game. We don't know what the extent of their injuries are yet, it's too early to tell."
