Experienced boss becomes first manager in English Football League and Premier League to lose his job this season
Leyton Orient are understood to have parted company with Andy Hessenthaler after just 11 games in charge as permanent manager.
Rumours emerged after the O’s 3-1 defeat to Notts County on Saturday in League Two that the ex-Gillingham boss could lose his job.
And it is believed the 51-year-old has now taken charge of his last match as manager of the east Londoners.
Hessenthaler initially took over the first team on a caretaker basis towards the end of last season after Kevin Nolan was relived of his managerial duties.

While he won three of his five games in charge, the O’s start to the new campaign has been a poor one. They have lost five of their 11 games in all competitions and won just four times this season.
Orient sit 14th in the table with 11 points from their opening nine fixtures ahead of hosting leaders Plymouth Argyle tomorrow.
