Leyton Orient produced a battling display at Barnet on Saturday and looked pretty sound defensively as they drew 0-0 in League Two.

Andy Edwards was taking charge of O’s for just the second time and it would prove to be his last after the appointment of Alberto Cavasin yesterday.

Chances were few and far between at the Hive but Orient deserved their point and it is something to build on ahead of visiting Southend United tomorrow in the EFL Trophy.

Alex Cisak (7) – The Australian made two important saves when called upon in each half and looked very assured throughout.

Nicky Hunt (7.5) – Excellent display from the right-back, made one timely block late on from Barnet substitute Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and was solid all afternoon.

Yvan Erichot (7.5) – One or two worrying moments but largely dealt with John Akinde brilliantly and this was probably his best performance for O’s to date.

Tom Parkes (7.5) – Good showing from the ex-Bristol Rovers captain, won his battles in the air and played well alongside Erichot.

Callum Kennedy (7) – Left-back put in a shift and tried to do both sides of the game as much as possible - got forward well a couple of times.

Harry Cornick (6.5) – AFC Bournemouth loanee started brightly and had good early effort but picked up injury and was forced off just after half time.

Liam Kelly (8) – Captain for the afternoon and began the game on top form, was trying to get Orient playing and although couldn’t get on ball enough after half time, was impressive.

Gavin Massey (7) – Winger had to play out of position in centre of midfield and did a very good job. He had to battle at times and never shied away.

Sandro Semedo (6) – Difficult afternoon for youngster, lost possession quite a few times, but didn’t give up and tried to cause Barnet’s back four problems.

Paul McCallum (6) – Harshly penalised by referee Darren Handley on quite a few occasions and did try to hold ball up, but got frustrated towards end of the match.

Jay Simpson (6) – Tough game for forward to get into and although had very good first half opportunity, could only fire straight at Barnet goalkeeper Josh Vickers.

Substitutes:

Jordan Bowery, for Cornick 50. (6) – Ex-Aston Villa striker struggled out wide and couldn’t stamp his mark on the match in an unfamilar position.

Ulrich Nnomo, for Semedo 71. (6) – Little time to make an impact and when he was on the ball he didn’t do too much.

Ollie Palmer, for Simpson 85.
