George Sessions provides player ratings following the 1-1 draw against AFC Wimbledon
Leyton Orient conceded 10 minutes from time and had to settle for a point during their London derby with AFC Wimbledon at Brisbane Road on Saturday.
Adebayo Akinfenwa equalised for the Dons against his old club to cancel out Jay Simpson’s early opener for the O’s.
John Marquis was sent off for the east Londoners and it handed the visitors a massive advantage, which they eventually took.
Alex Cisak (7.5) – Orient’s number one didn’t have too many saves to make, but did produce a breathtaking stop just before Wimbledon finally levelled it up.
Sean Clohessy (7) – The red card and good play from the Dons meant the stand-in skipper couldn’t attack as much as he usually does, quiet afternoon for former Southend man.
Jean-Yves M’voto (8) – Outstanding performance from the recent recruit as he marshalled the back four brilliantly for the majority of the game. He won his fair share of headers and is looking a top signing.
Cole Kpekawa (8) – Composed display by the Queens Park Rangers youngster and he handled Akinfenwa well too, like M’voto looks to be a good addition.
Frazer Shaw (8) – Another solid showing from the former West Ham United ace, who appears a lot more relaxed on the ball now and is improving with every match.
Jack Payne (7.5) – Tried to get the O’s playing their football, but sending off didn’t help and Wimbledon’s midfield performed strongly.
Bradley Pritchard (6) – A poor day at the office for the normally reliable Orient ace, he lost his battle in the middle and I can’t remember much that he did all afternoon.
Sammy Moore (7) – Like Payne, tried to get things going for the east Londoners, especially against his former club, and battled well, but couldn’t turn tide after Marquis saw red.
John Marquis (5.5) – Millwall loanee was working extremely hard and giving everything, but just went a little bit over the edge and committed two tackles which resulted in his sending off.
Ollie Palmer (5.5) – Big forward had an afternoon to forget as not much that he tried worked for him and he was substituted early in second half.
Jay Simpson (7.5) – League Two’s top goalscorer finished off nice move to give Orient the lead, but was feeding off scraps afterwards.
Mathieu Baudry, for Palmer 56. (7) – Captain came on and did very well, won lots in the air and tried to keep out Wimbledon.
Blair Turgott, for Simpson 75. (6) – Only 15 minutes to make an impact, but just couldn’t get on the ball or control it when it went near him.
