See thisislondon.co.uk/lite Warnock on cloud nine as Palace react Andros slays Lions to give Os a boost LEYTON ORIENT manager Geraint Williams confessed he was delighted to see the Os finally win at home as they beat London rivals Millwall with an Andros Townsend goal. Id been playing down the fact we hadnt won here this season because its important to keep the players positive, but it is a monkey off our backs and its something to build on now, he said. Charlton remain in second place in League One after their 2-1 home win over Exeter, but assistant manager Tim Breacker still said: Theres a bit of naivety about some of our play that we can improve on. Dagenham lost ground at the top of League Two after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Morecambe. And Barnet slipped up as they were comprehensively beaten 3-0 by automatic promotion- chasing Rotherham. LEAGUE ONE & TWO NEIL WARNOCK reckons he has gone from the lowest of the low to the highest of thehighafterhisCrystalPalaceteam beatleagueleadersWestBrom1-0atThe Hawthorns. The Eagles boss was slammed earlier this month when Palace were mauled 4-0 at home against Scunthorpe. But Warnock knows that football for- tunes can change very quickly and was delighted to see his side bounce back in style against the Baggies. Two weeks ago, the defeat to Scunthorpewasprobablythelowestpart of mycareerandthisresultisoneof the highest, he explained. Alessane NDiaye secured the victory with a goal midway through the second half as he coolly slotted past West Brom goalkeeper Scott Carson. QPR manager Jim Magilton believes Rangers will now really kick on follow- ing their 5-2 home win over Barnsley. Akos Buzsaky netted twice and there were also goals from Mikele Leigert- wood, Ben Watson and Jay Simpson. QPRarenoweighthandMagiltonsaid: Performancesbringyoupoints.Theres still a long way to go, but the belief is growing and confidence is too with results. Watford will be without striker Heidar Helguson for tomorrow nights home clash against Coventry after he was forced to miss the 1-1 draw with Reading with a calf injury. Danny Grahams second-half goal earned the Hornets a point after Grze- gorz Rasiak put Reading ahead.
