Leyton Orient will be happy to see the back of Exeter City after they tormented them some more at the weekend in League Two.

The Grecians won 3-1 at Brisbane Road to add to the 4-0 triumph they achieved in the previous encounter back in September.

Ian Hendon lost his job as the O’s head coach as a result despite seeing his team take the lead through Ollie Palmer inside 27 seconds.

Come the full time whistle the hosts were booed off with home fans calling for Hendon to go – they eventually got their wish.

Alex Cisak (7) – The Australian made some fine saves in the first half and one key intervention after the interval, but should have done a lot better for the first goal.

Sean Clohessy (5.5) – Orient’s captain for the day was ball watching for the first and second goal as he lost his marker for both, but did win a penalty late on.

Jean-Yves M’voto (5) – The big man’s final game at Brisbane Road was a demonstration of how not to defend. He didn’t do much right during the first 45 and was unsurprisingly subbed at the break

Connor Essam (5.5) – Another tough day for the defender as he was part of a back four that was all over the place – but he did make a good block in first half stoppage time.

Cole Kpekawa (5.5) – QPR man seems like a big confidence player as he looked very nervy from the off and didn’t get tight enough to his men to stop crosses coming in.

Blair Turgott (5.5) – Former West Ham United youngster failed to play Clohessy through on goal when the score was 1-0 and how the match might have been different if he had. He took too long on the ball throughout and was subbed at the break.

Jack Payne (6) – Posh midfielder couldn’t get close to Exeter opponents and although he got on the ball more in the second period, he couldn’t inspire an O’s comeback.

Bradley Pritchard (6.5) – He battled well and played intelligent ball to help create the opener, but like Payne couldn’t win the battle in the middle.

Jobi McAnuff (6.5) – Excellent pass for Palmer to score and worked hard, but couldn’t get in the game much afterwards until the latter stages.

Ollie Palmer (7) – A rare bright spot for the O’s as the forward scored his fourth league goal of the season and worked hard throughout.

Jay Simpson (5.5) – The top goalscorer in League Two has been excellent this season, but failed to score two penalties and missed other decent chances as well. A bad day for him.

Substitutes:

Calaum Jahraldo-Martin, for Turgott 46. (7) – The Hull City loanee looked sharp from the off and played a part in both penalties with excellent through balls.

Frazer Shaw, for M’voto 46. (6.5) – Not much the full-back could do when he came on, but didn’t let anybody down.

Scott Kashket, for Bradley Pritchard 82.
