George Sessions provides player ratings following the 2-1 defeat at home to Carlisle United
Leyton Orient tasted defeat for the first time at Brisbane Road this season when Carlisle United visited and grabbed a 2-1 victory.
Derek Asamoah put the Cumbrians ahead in the 62nd minute, but Mathieu Baudry quickly equalised for the O’s two minutes later.
But it was the away side that went back in front through Antony Sweeney, 18 minutes from time, and that was how it finished despite Ian Hendon’s team having several chances throughout the match.
Alex Cisak (6) – The Australian was making his last appearance before going off on international duty and may feel he should have done better with first.
Frazer Shaw (5.5) – A difficult night for the young full-back, who started well and provided two decent balls into the box early on, but began giving possession away cheaply and struggled.
Connor Essam (6) – Normally quite assured, but couldn’t deal with Asamoah throughout and the Carlisle forward peeled off him for the opener.
Mathieu Baudry (7) – The O’s captain got his side back on level terms, but like rest of the back four wasn’t at his best and it wasn’t his best night.
Sean Clohessy (6.5) – Right-back again bombed forward to good effect for Orient. His final ball, however, wasn’t good enough at times.
Jack Payne (8) – Another classy display by the midfielder on-loan from Peterborough United. He does the simple things so well and should probably have capped his performance with a goal, but failed to hit the target with two good chances.
Bradley Pritchard (6.5) – The Zimbabwean was sloppy on occasions with his passing, but did work hard. He might have done better in opening minute when through on goal, but he scuffed his effort wide.
Sammy Moore (6.5) – Not as influential as usual and failed to get on the ball like he normally does, subbed off with 15 minutes remaining.
Dean Cox (7.5) – Orient talisman tried hard to force the break through and hit the crossbar on two separate occasions, produced the equaliser and did well again.
Jay Simpson (6.5) – A frustrating evening for the O’s top goalscorer, he had chances, but couldn’t find the net when it mattered.
Ollie Palmer (6) – Big forward should have done better with the two opportunities he had in either half and if he had, Orient might have won.
Blair Turgott, for Moore 75. (6) – The former West Ham man had a superb chance to equalise in stoppage time, but fired over the crossbar.
Scott Kashket, for Frazer Shaw 86.
