Leyton Orient conceded in the 89th minute to suffer a 2-1 defeat at home to Mansfield Town on Saturday.

It was a tough encounter for Andy Hessenthaler’s team and they didn’t defend well enough throughout.

Although Liam Kelly got them back on level terms in the 73rd minute, goals from Mitchell Rose and Matt Green gave the Stags the three points.

Alex Cisak (7) - Orient’s goalkeeper did well whenever he was called upon and was good with both his hands and feet.

Liam Kelly (7) - Another strong performance by the stand-in skipper, battled well and showed great composure to score his second for the club.

Nigel Atangana (7) - Lots of nice touches from French midfielder and drove team on when required.

Harry Cornick (6) - Wasn’t able to get on the ball enough, although when he did he looked bright.

Dean Cox (7) - Couldn’t get on the ball enough in first half, but looked better after the break and put in some wonderful deliveries.

Gavin Massey (7) - Better from the wide man as he was always trying to put Stags on back foot and played part in equaliser

Ollie Palmer (5) - Frustrating afternoon for the ex-Mansfield striker, missed great early chance and lost his head slightly after not being awarded penalty

Substitutes:

Paul McCallum, for Palmer 62. (6) – Close to getting on end of a cross late on and was presence up front.

Jordan Bowery, for Cornick 62. (7) – Lovely close control for the equaliser and kept hold of the ball well.
