But he feels he should have made the most of more regular opportunities which have come his way to have helped put the Alex in a more healthy position in the table.
He said: "I have been reasonably pleased with the way it has gone for me so far.
"I could have had some more as well because this team is always going to create chances. We just have to be a bit more clinical."
Leitch-Smith scored nine as Crewe won promotion from League Two last season and he has been reasonably happy with how he has handled the step up into the third tier.
He said: "We have been able to get on a little run and credit to the defence because they have not conceded too many goals. We have been tight at the back and if we had been more clinical then we could possibly have picked up more points.
"We have had some decent results against a lot of the top teams so we cannot complain too much. Now we have to build on our unbeaten run.
"The standard is higher in this league and every game is tough. Leyton Orient are on a great run themselves so we know it is going to be difficult.
"That is the major difference between the two divisions you have to play really well to get results."
