What the boss had to say
Here’s what Marcus Bignot had to say to the press after last night’s 2-2 draw at Leyton Orient.
Full-time: Leyton Orient 2 Chester 2

Kingsley James shown a yellow.
Chance wasted for the Blues as Gough chooses to shoot when in space. He had Bell screaming for it in the centre.
What a let off!

Myles Anderson on for Chester debut in place of Rowe-Turner. 76 mins.
Plenty of pressure here from the home side and Chester are hanging on. Orient look the most likely to win this.
Orient still pressing
A lot of huffing and puffing from the Blues and they are being too wasteful in possession. Not keeping the ball well at all with the extra man.
