REACTION: Hessenthaler - 'There were lots of positives'

24 July 2016

Hessenthaler reflects on O's first home friendly

Orient boss Andy Hessenthaler was pleased with a number of aspects of his side's play during the goalless draw with Charlton Athletic.

While unable to force their way past Dillon Phillips in the Addicks goal, the manager was pleased at the chances created by the hosts, while he was also happy with the organisation at the back as the O's get their second successive clean sheet in pre-season.

Skipper Robbie Weir and Liam Kelly started in midfield against Russell Slade's side, but Hessenthaler is delighted to have so much competition for places, and admits he has plenty of selection dilemmas as he looks to work out his starting XI for the season opener at Cheltenham Town on August 6.
