Leyton Orient v Colchester – Report

11 Apr

Orient took another huge step to safety with a fourth home win under Geraint Williams tenure (to match the four away wins under GW)
Colchester took the lead in the 43rd of the first half through Clive Platt after good work by Simon Hackney, but Charlie Daniels hit back in stoppage time to send the teams in level at half-time.

Scott McGleish had a trio of chances in the second half, including a chance that hit the bar, but sealed the points in the 79th minute with a goal against his former team, by putting the finishing touch to good work by on-loan Jimmy Smith.
Shortly after, Adam Boyd made his return to the team by replacing Jimmy Smith.
With Northampton losing yesterday, The O’s are now 12 points clear of the relegation zone, but Williams won’t let the O’s get complacement as they travel to Swindon on Easter Monday.
Swindon also took a step to safety with a 3-2 at Brighton after trailing at half-time. The prolific Simon Cox scored the decisive third goal.

Leyton Orient v Leeds – Player Ratings

9 Apr

Jones – 7 Kicking was off but a brilliant double save that deserves a lot more credit kept Orient in the game. Good to see a confident keeper that comes for ball. Makes a whole lot of differnce

Mkandawire – 7 so good to see him back in the team and doesn’t seem to be showing effects from recent injury. Dominant at the end and didn’t give the leeds strikers a sniff really.

Spence – 7 Does the job, quick and just gets rid of the ball, seems to have good partnership with Mkandawire.

Daniels – 6 Not a defender and that is easy to see, but does well going forward but frustrates with some of his set plays. Looked nervous after getting booked.

Cave-Brown – 6 got caught out a little and kept dragging inside which then gave Leeds a lot of space on the wings but will be a good player, and it was his first game for a while so bound to be rusty.

Morgan – 8 Had a great game, chased back and looked dangerous on the ball, yet again showed his quality which makes it even more frustating when does not show all the time. Looking for contract and performances like this can only help.

Thornton – 8 close second for man of match, did so much work for the team and last 20 minutes seemed to be everywhere. Good free kick led to first goal.

Smith – 7 looks so much better now in natural position in the centre. Passing is quality and nearly always find a man and also not afraid to get stuck in.

Demetriou – 4 Didn’t really do much on the right and too often just runs and does not seem to know what he was doing and then tries to many tricks, sent off for handball on line that looked debateable.

Church – 8 Does so much running for the team, always chasing even when looks it like lost causes. 2 goals here and since first goal has looked so much more confident.

Gray – 6 Didn’t really get into the game, won few headers and slowly getting back to fitness.

Match report: 1st half
A great result for Orient, inflicting defeat on Cheltenham for the first time in six matches.
Scott McGleish had the visitors first shot on goal after 17 minutes after beating the offside trap, but failed to hit the target.
8 Minutes later Daniels and Demetriou combined to set up Dean Morgan who broke the deadlock with a shot that went in off the post, a second succesive goal aided by the woodwork, following Jason Demetriou’s late winner last week v Oldham.
Cheltenham had just one clear cut chance in the first half, with Jamie Jones preventing Paul Connor scoring against his old club.

2nd Half…
Paul Terry had a 25 yard effort just over and there was a double goal line clearance from Townsend. Another great win for Orient under Geraint Williams, and surely condemning Cheltenham to relegation back to League Two.
