Player ratings Vs Leyton Orient

editorial image

Martin – 7 – after a shaky start the keeper made a number of confident catches and punches to settle the nerves.

Chicksen – 8 – super display from the youngster. Coped well moving to unfamiliar right-back position after Woodards’ injury and put himself about in tackles.

Doumbe – 7 – powerful in the air, confident in possession, and generally as you’d expect from him this season.

Lewington – 7 – his early slip allowed McGleish in to score, but he never looked troubled at centre half and at his more customary left back roll in the second half.

Woodards – 7 – eager to get forward and support Guy on the right, but picked up a heavy knock to the head in the first half and was replaced at the interval.

Carrington – 7 – did the simple things right. Short passes, rarely lost possession, and strong in the tackle. Sat in well in front of the centre halves when Gleeson and Leven pushed forwards.

Gleeson – 8 – is quickly becoming the midfield general. Everything went through him, he dictated the pace of Dons’ attacks and topped his performance off with a spectacular goal.

Leven – 7 – put in several very good crosses from set-pieces, picking out O’Hanlon for the second goal. Worked tirelessly chasing the ball in the midfield.

Chadwick – 6 – another quiet game for the winger. Made way for Vine with 20 minutes to go.

Guy – 6 – couldn’t really assert himself on the game, although his pace running across the Orient area was causing problems in the opening period. Was replaced by new signing Amoo.

Ibehre - 7 – still a favourite among the Leyton Orient fans, the big man had little to work with in terms of chances, but brought a brilliant save out of Jones with a header in first half stoppage time.

Subs:

O’Hanlon – 7 – dominated at the back alongside Doumbe. Was in the right place at the right time to claim the equaliser. A good return from injury though clearly not fully fit yet.

Amoo – 6 – showed signs of promise in his 25 minutes on the pitch, but hardly touched the ball.

Vine – 6 – eager to get involved, dropping deep to collect the ball from the midfield. Made some powerful runs forward and had a goalward effort blocked.

TOP DON – Gleeson: opened the scoring - and his Dons account - with a magnificent volley. Ran the show in midfield and looks on top form.
