Check out the gallery below for pictures from Orient’s draw at Preston on Saturday.

It was an emotional occasion, coming less than 24 hours after the death of Preston legend Sir Tom Finney.

Orient skipper Nathan Clarke, along with his Lilywhites counterpart John Welsh, presented wreaths to the Finney family before kick-off, which was preceded by an impeccably-observed minute’s silence.

When the action got underway, defender Mathieu Baudry volleyed the O’s into a half-time lead.

But the Frenchman conceded a second half penalty for a challenge on Craig Davies, which was converted by Joe Garner to ensure the spoils were shared.
