National League leaders Leyton Orient were frustrated after being held to a goalless draw at home to Aldershot Town last night.

The O’s failed to produce the cutting edge which has taken them to the summit this season but the point was still enough to keep them top of the table.

Orient claimed a superb 2-0 win at promotion rivals Wrexham on Saturday and extended their unbeaten run to eight matches after their midweek draw.

Justin Edinburgh’s side are one point clear of Salford City after 22 games and have a four-point cushion over third-placed Wrexham.

The Orient boss named an unchanged squad following their impressive win in Wales and the hosts made a bright start to the match.

The O’s dominated possession early on and were unlucky not to take the lead from a dangerous free-kick.

Midfielder Jobi McAnuff stepped up and his strike, from the edge of the area, cannoned off the crossbar before the visitors managed to clear the ball to safety.

McAnuff was threatening for Orient and his cross narrowly evaded Macauley Bonne as they searched for the breakthrough.

The hosts again came agonisingly close to the opener when Dale Gorman’s shot was cleared off the line.

The Shots fired in their first effort before the break but Matt McClure’s strike from distance flew over the bar.

Edinburgh’s team kept the pressure on in the second half with Joe Widdowson heading McAnuff’s free-kick over.

James Dayton set up Gorman and his low shot was well saved by goalkeeper Will Mannion.

Orient’s final chance fell to Marvin Ekpiteta but he headed McAnuff’s corner wide of the target.

The leaders, who are unbeaten since the end of September, host seventh-placed Gateshead on Saturday afternoon.
