Pre-season friendly: Huddersfield Town 2 Leyton Orient 0

Leyton Orient conceded once in each half this morning as they fell to defeat against Championship outfit Huddersfield Town in Spain.

Ian Hendon was taking charge of his third match as O’s head coach, but was unable to see his side earn success.

He handed a start to goalkeeper Gary Woods, who is expected to be first choice this season, and played Bradley Pritchard in central midfield for the first time.

Dean Cox and Blair Turgott were asked to support Jay Simpson in attack in the first half as Orient looked to earn a first win under their new boss.

But Joe Lolley broke the deadlock for the Championship side 10 minutes before half time, firing home from 20-yards-out.

It remained 1-0 at half time to Chris Powell’s Terriers’ and in the 67th minute Huddersfield doubled their lead when an O’s defender turned a cross into his own net.

That was how it finished as the Brisbane Road club tasted a second defeat out in Spain, they are due to fly back to England early next week before preparing to face Colchester United, of League One next weekend.
