Chesterfield 0-0 Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient picked up their first point of the season with a draw at struggling Chesterfield.

The Spireites dominated the first half and nearly opened the scoring when Alex Mendy was sent clear by Ben Chorley but shot too close to Lee Butcher.

Orient came closest when Mark Laird forced Tommy Lee into a sprawling save, but it proved to be one of few chances for The O's.

Winless Chesterfield have now had their worst league start since 1901.


Chesterfield manager John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"I think Jack Lester has a very bad injury. Hearsay is that he's broken his arm. We'll take him to hospital and see how he is.

"We should have won the game comfortably in my eyes. I thought we played really well.

"If the players show me that character, the way they played today, hopefully we'll start winning games."

Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade told BBC London 94.9:

"I don't know if it's a point gained or two lost, as you want to come away with something, but there was never a 0-0 look about the game.

"You have to create chances for the front men to function so I made some changes and gave us a different focus.

"We've got someone coming in on loan this week and we want to do some more business in the loan market and hope to give us more depth."
