STATS: Head-To-Head

3 April 2013

Si Hawkins takes a look at the defensive stats from Monday's victory over Bury as he compares the central defenders from both sides

This week's centre half-based Head to Head didn’t quite go as planned. First we focussed on Orient's Mathieu Baudry and Bury's Efe Sodje, both of whom were unable to complete the match. Then Baudry's replacement, Elliot Omozusi, also went off injured. 

Baudry had an eventful 10 minutes. The Frenchman suffered an uncharacteristically shaky start, including a misplaced pass that almost led to a Bury goal, but soon recovered his poise. His run and pass began an attack that resulted in a good effort from David Mooney, and his flick-on set up Jimmy Smith's opener, before injury forced him off. Baudry’s replacement, Omozusi, had a relatively trouble-free game, bar an early mix-up with Moses Odubajo that almost set up a Bury chance, but he also retired hurt, resulting in a back four reshuffle.

Sodje was a solid presence at the back for the visitors, his aerial prowess also setting up one of the Lancashire sides’ many spurned chances before he left the field; the 40 year-old was substituted shortly after receiving treatment following his block on Jimmy Smith’s long-shot. His Cameroonian replacement, Valery Mezague, endured something of a torrid afternoon, including some suspect decision-making and a couple of clumsy challenges that on another day might have yielded Orient penalties. The home sided failed to add to their lead, though, and at least he made it to the final whistle.
