I'd expect us to name the same side as last weekend against Macclesfield, but with Joe Widdowson in as left wing back.

Another low key attacking performance will not doubt cause another meltdown amongst one or two of our thick fans.

Stevenage haven't scored a league goal yet, but I'd be suprised if they didn't here.

Wouldn't be too disappointed with a draw.

A huge missed chance to get a win against a very patched up side who lost 2 more players to injury in the first half.

We had enough chances today, more than enough to win the game as well Paul Farman pulled off two worldy saves to deny Wright and Wilkinson, so frustrating on that front as we can't seem to buy a goal at the minute. Having said that we've kept 6 clean sheets in our last 7 league games.

Stevenage were worthy of a draw, their team put in a good shift and Dean Brill did have to make 3 good saves as well.

We have a talented side, but we may need a more experienced coach to help them along the way.

As both you and Salford are realising (as we did we came back up) getting promoted from the Mickey Mouse league doesn’t mean you’ll do well in a proper league - orient will be fine.

Just takes a bit of readjusting from playing park sides to regular football again

We set up to get a draw, and got just that, glad to get our first point of the season. I thought Orient were the better side, they had more of the ball, had more shots on goal and generally looked the most likely to score. Farman made a couple of great saves to keep it at 0-0, we could have knicked it at the death but Brill denied us with a good save.

Credit to the two young lads who were playing centre half, both did well given the circumstances. Playing the way we did yesterday would see us lose more often than not, benefit of the doubt with our injury list currently but expect to see an improvement as players return.
