Leyton Orient boss Andy Hessenthaler believes his side need to focus on making the right decisions at the right time after their second home defeat from the season.

Mansfield Town beat the O’s 2-1 at Brisbane Road and Orient have now only managed three points from a possible nine at their own stomping ground.

Mitchell Rose and Matt Green were the players to halt the O’s plans to win three games in a row in League Two.

“I looked at the goals it is not that we lacked concentration, we didn’t make the right decision at the right time,” said Hessenthaler.

“It was too easy to get the ball in to start with and we never dealt with the cross and the second goal was certainly a mistake on the far post.

“And defensively, we have just let him run in and score, we can’t do that, we just can’t we have got to stop that.

“If we stop that I think we are always going to create chances with the players we have got on that pitch. “ Former Arsenal striker Jay Simpson, who scored 25 goals last season, was once again a clear omission from the side.

Ollie Palmer remains the only striker to have scored for the O’s as he netted the winner against Grimsby last week as Liam Kelly and Gavin Massey have produced the goods from midfield.

The 51-year-old added: “It is a little bit concerning (strikers are not scoring), but we have been scoring from other areas and we were not going that last year.

“But hopefully we have to keep going with them, keep working with them and hopefully the goals will come from the forwards.

“Simpson is still injured today, he will hopefully be back training early in the week and we will see from there and there is no interest from other clubs as far as I know.”

Earlier in the day, the O’s were linked with the match winning goalscorer Green but Hessenthaler said he knew nothing about the player.

“All I know about Matt Green was he scored the winner today,” Hessenthaler concluded.

Orient will next face Stevenage in the EFL trophy on Tuesday night kicking off at 7:45pm at Brisbane Road before they travel to top of the table Morecombe on Saturday, September 3.
