Leyton Orient and MK Dons played out a goalless draw at Brisbane Road yesterday as the O’s winless run at home continued.

After an action-packed first 45 minutes where both goalkeepers were forced into action on several occasions, the second period dipped in quality and a draw was probably a fair result.

And here are Leyton Orient’s player ratings from yesterday’s match.

Gary Woods 7 – Wasn’t troubled too much by MK Dons but when called into action made a fine double save from Randall and Afobe to keep it goalless in the first half.

Scott Cuthbert 6 - Solid display but wasn’t particularly overworked as the visitors failed to cause many problems going forward.

Nathan Clarke 6 – Dealt with everything the Dons through at Orient which wasn’t too much. Late booking proves untimely though as O’s will be without the skipper at Doncaster on Tuesday.

Mathieu Baudry 5 – Looked untroubled throughout but picked up two needless yellow cards in as many minutes and he will miss Tuesday’s trip to the Keepmoat Stadium.

Shane Lowry 8 – Really seems to have found his feet at O’s now and put in another commanding performance whether it’s at centre back or left back as he was yesterday. Went extremely close to breaking his goalscoring duck with a cracking effort from 40 yards, but Martin saved well.

Jack Price 7 - Hit and miss with his distribution and set pieces at times but put a lovely ball across which Batt should have finished. Settling in.

Romain Vincelot 6 – Much quieter game for the Frenchman in comparison to recent weeks

Bradley Pritchard 6 - Another solid showing from the former Charlton man and grew into the game.

Shaun Batt 6 – Plenty of endeavour and does have an impact on the side but missed the great chance in the game in the first half to put the O’s in front.

Darius Henderson 5 – Poor game from the striker as he often lost possession but didn’t have the service he needs either.

Jay Simpson 6 – Glimpses of potential and continued to pressurise the MK Dons defence with his pace, but effort often went without reward.

Chris Dagnall (for Batt 59) 6 – Another who chases every lost cause and forced the visitors into a few stray passes.
