Darius Henderson’s 30th minute volley was enough to give Leyton Orient a share of the spoils at Gresty Road on Saturday.

Lauri Dalla Valle had put the Railwaymen on course for three points, but Fabio Liverani’s team battled back and in the end could have won the game themselves had they been more clinical in front of goal.

They found Crewe goalkeeper Paul Rachubka, a former O’s loanee, in good form however and had to be grateful for a point.

Alex Cisak (7) – The on-loan Burnley keeper might have done a little bit better with Crewe’s goal, but made an important save from Ryan Colclough during the second half.

Scott Cuthbert (7) – Solid defensive display from the right-back and he supported attacks throughout at Gresty Road.

Nathan Clarke (7) – Impressive performance from the skipper on his return to the starting team. He was strong in the air and won his individual battles.

Mathieu Baudry (8) – Frenchman grew into the contest and played a big part in O’s strong second half showing by anticipating so many forward passes and getting them on the front foot. Man of the match display.

Shane Lowry (8) – Left-back was a real threat throughout proceeding at Crewe. He whipped in various dangerous deliveries and could easily have had a couple of assists.

Ryan Hedges (7) – Attacker, on-loan from Swansea City, was full of energy and ran at the Railwaymen defence constantly. His decision making needs more work, but he was a real live wire on the right.

Josh Wright (6) – He couldn’t find the net for a third consecutive time, but passed the ball around well and battled hard in midfield.

Marvin Bartley (7) – Good display from former Burnley man. He worked hard and provided excellent cross for Henderson’s equaliser.

Jobi McAnuff (6) – Some brief flashes of quality, but might have done better with three opportunities presented to him. He has a great work ethic though.

Chris Dagnall (6) – Liverpool-born forward chased every lost cause and worked his socks off, but couldn’t beat Rachubka when one-on-one in the second half. He needed to score.

Darius Henderson (7) – He was in the right place at the right time to score, but hadn’t impressed before that moment. Forward did improve as game wore on.

Substitutes:

Andrea Dossena, for Lowry 74. (5) – Italian didn’t get involved enough after introduction.

Plasmati, for Hedges 86. N/A – He wasn’t on long enough to make impression.
