Leyton Orient supporters voiced their frustration after watching their side only draw 1-1 with Yeovil Town on Saturday.

Francois Zoko, who was on trial with the O’s during the summer, put the Glovers ahead just before half time after some poor defending from the hosts.

Supporters voiced their frustrating at the break and throughout the second half, chanting ‘Hendon out’ on numerous occasions.

But Jobi McAnuff got them off their feet and cheering when he smashed in from 30-yards-out to earn Orient a point.

Alex Cisak (6.5) – Not the Australian’s best display for the club, he added to the nerves by smashing into Jean-Yves M’voto inside the opening five minutes and nearly contributed towards giving away a penalty late on.

Mathieu Baudry (6.5) – The skipper didn’t do a lot wrong on Saturday in an unfamiliar positions, but he needed to somehow lead by example and make a few challenges that could have inspired his team mates. He didn’t.

Jean-Yves M’voto (6) – French defender looked off the pace against the Glovers, collided with Cisak early on and sliced clearance for Yeovil’s goal. Not a great day for him.

Cole Kpekawa (6.5) - Youngster was nervous like most of the side in the first half and struggled to pick out team mates when the ball was at his feet.

Frazer Shaw (5) – So disappointing for the former Dulwich Hamlets ace because he has looked brilliant since returning to the side since November, but he had a poor one on Saturday. Not much he did went right.

Blair Turgott (6.5) – Youngsters did grow into the game as it went on, but needed to be more direct in the first half and not cut inside as much.

Jack Payne (6) – Peterborough loanee was trying to get the O’s ticking over, but struggled to find options up top before he was forced off on a stretcher.

Lloyd James (7.5) – A rare bright note for Orient as the experienced ace took control in the second half, got his team mates playing with more urgency and inspired with some crunchy tackles.

Bradley Pritchard (6.5) – The Zimbabwean was asked to do a job on the left, but it isn’t his position and he struggled.

Scott Kashket (6) – Frustrating afternoon for the 19-year-old, who deserved his chance, but couldn’t get on the ball enough and was subbed early.

Jay Simpson (6) – League Two’s top goalscorer didn’t get a kick on Saturday, but did need to do more himself up front as he didn’t keep the ball well enough.

Substitutes:

Ollie Palmer, for Payne 45. (6.5) – Big forward once again made a positive impact off the bench, but chances just don’t fall for him despite all his endeavour.

Jobi McAnuff, for Kashket 55. (8) – The Jamaican was outstanding once he came on, running at his opponents and he scored a wonderful goal. He was unlucky not to get another minutes later and changed the game.

Victor Adeboyejo, for Turgott 86.
