Huge doom and gloom cloud hanging over us at the moment. Only won two home games all season and played shit over Christmas.

Most fans not overly keen on Ross staying in charge.

We are down to the bare bones squad wise and have put a VERY young team out. Only two players above 25 in the starting XI. Hope we can pull off a performance similar to last week.

Even but scrappy game here, neither side creating much clear cut, but plenty of set pieces in and around the box.

We cleared a ricochet of the line from a corner and Angol put one over from 2 yards when it probably would have been a goal if he left it.

Looked much better for us when Vernam moved to the middle instead of Rose, brought us more into the game as Vernam was able to bring others in better. Rose just not the right person to play on his own in the middle, that's where we miss Hanson/Ogbu.

Late pen denies us a third win on the bounce.

Probably about right in the end, very even game, Orient had more of the ball second half, but it was all set peices from fouls and corners without much else. Ref giving them everything.

Great finish from Clarke, and good pen from Angol. Ref was poor though as usual, deffo pen, but he gave a throw just before it which was never out and the Linesman didn't give it.

Decent result for us given our much depleted side and very young side. Glennon looked decent and composed on the ball. Clarke showed what someone who can hit the target can do. We defended the numerous free kicks and corners well, but a silly late challenge gives them the pen. Clifton got through right at the death too, dragged to the floor and just a yellow card.

Two very similar sides IMO - Both showing alot of effort for their new managers, but lacking in alot of genuine quality. Holloway and Embleton have got long roads ahead of them in rebuilding both sides.

Draw was a fair result, we edged the game overall and certainly deserved something from it, penalty was clumsy from the Grimsby player. Another individual error from ourselves, this time James Brophy for the goal we let in - Grimsby hadn't even laid a real glove on us until they scored, but thats been the story of our defending all season.

Ross has to work on us in the final third again, because our slow decision making means we're not getting shots and chances out. Lee Angol also isn't getting anywhere near enough support.

Think a point with such a threadbare squad and yet another injury is good enough. Would’ve been nice for 3 points before the visit of Exeter though

Enjoyable game in the second half. Would have been a travesty if we hadn’t taken something from it. Your number 10 needs to rename himself ‘Shitehouse’. Terrible finishes from him. Two sides who are going nowhere fast.

He's been poor this season, but had a good game today apart from his two shots obviously. Was nice to have someone who knows where the goal is when Clarke came on, hopefully he is not late for training next week and gets to start and Hanson should be back too.

If we can score goals we will push up into top half because defensively we are not too bad.

Defo didn’t deserve 3 points as orient were better than us. Saying that it is still gutting to concede such as soft penalty. Seeing it again still not convinced it was but he gave the ref a decision to make and the longer the game went on the more it became obvious that the ref was a homer and was itching for an excuse. Naively we gave him that excuse.

Cracking ball from him to send Clarke through on goal though.
