Leyton Orient’s season virtually come to an end on Saturday following their 1-0 loss to London rivals AFC Wimbledon.

The three points for the Dons means the O’s can no longer reach the League Two play-offs this year and will remain in the fourth tier of English football.

After the defeat, they dropped to 14th in the table with Lyle Taylor’s goal making it a sorry afternoon for everyone associated with the east Londoners.

Alex Cisak (8) – One of his best performances of the season as his saves prevented it from being 3-0 or 4-0 at half time. Called into action after break too and impressive throughout at Cherry Red Records Stadium.

Nicky Hunt (5) – Struggled, especially in first 45, against Andy Barcham and although he improved in second half, he couldn’t help create anything from his deep free kicks.

Mathieu Baudry (6) – The skipper battled brilliantly with Tom Elliott and Taylor, but did come off second best on quite a few occasions. Second half was much better from French defender.

Shaun Brisley (6) – Similar to his captain, up against two good forwards and won his fair share in the dual, but couldn’t prevent Taylor scoring the winner after 17 minutes.

Peter Ramage (5) – Didn’t do a bad job at left-back, but made crucial error for the goal and somebody as experienced as him shouldn’t be making a mistake like that despite it looking like ball went out of play.

Sean Clohessy (6) – Former Southend United man worked hard and did his best up against Callum Kennedy, but got little joy out of opposite number before being subbed.

Lloyd James (5) – Pitch wasn’t conducive to his passing style and eventually he ended up lumping long balls forward which didn’t have enough accuracy - tough afternoon for the normally reliable midfielder.

Sammy Moore (6) – First appearance in just under a month and worked extremely hard all game, made some strong challenges, but didn’t have enough quality in final third.

Blair Turgott (6) – A lot of effort and energy from ex-West Ham United winger, he tried some tricks and flicks, but couldn’t produce a telling delivery for strikers and faded after half time.

Armand Gnanduillet (5.5) – French forward had a great chance straight after break, but fired straight at Wimbledon’s goalkeeper before getting in Ollie Palmer’s way for another opportunity. Difficult afternoon up against some good defenders.

Ollie Palmer (6) – Big man worked his socks off as usual, but missed excellent chance from close range. Even though he was slightly put off by Gnanduillet, he should have done better and struggled against Dons back four.

Substitutes:

Scott Kashket, for Clohessy 76. (5.5) – Not much time for youngster to make an impact on the game, he had one free kick opportunity, but hit it straight into the wall.

Sandro Semedo, for Turgott 86.
