Leyton Orient manager Andy Hessenthaler was delighted with the goals they scored at Carlisle United on Saturday in League Two.

The O’s opener in the 44th minute was worked brilliantly between Robbie Weir, Jordan Bowery and Paul McCallum.

Meanwhile the second was a wonderful individual effort from Harry Cornick, on loan from AFC Bournemouth.

Both showed what Orient can produce and it impressed their boss, although he was disappointed with the two they conceded in the 2-2 draw.

“We’re capable of that and it was a good goal. When you get it to Paul you know you have got a chance because he does finish,” said Hessenthaler.

“It was a great ball from Jordan, but we worked it well. I think they were calling for a foul in the build-up.

“But it has come to Tom Parkes who defended well and it was a good bit of play. I’m pleased with it. I’m pleased with both goals, but disappointed with the two we conceded.”

Bowery and McCallum combined wonderfully for the opener at Brunton Park, but neither finished the game.

The goalscorer was replaced with 12 minutes remaining by Sandro Semedo and the ex-Oxford United striker was subbed off in the 51st minute.

O’s manager was quick to allay any fears the pair might be out of action for a while after playing the full 90 minutes at Morecambe.

Hessenthaler added: “Paul’s knee is ok but he has had a lot of football lately and had the long-term injury – he has not been back long.

“His fitness levels are looking really good now, but he got a bit of cramp at the end, although the knee is fine.

“That’s good news and Jordan got a dead leg that he couldn’t run off and we got Ollie Palmer on.

“We know what he does, he gives everything and certainly did that in the second half, but I’m hoping both Paul and Jordan will be ok for Yeovil Town.”
