If that’s aimed at me then you’re completely missing the point.

I’m delighted the game is on. :)
Strange way of showing it. If the pitch inspection had been at 9 it may well have been called off.
The ref would have been confident all was likely to be OK, but knew it would rely on a few hours above 4 degrees to be certain.
Think its been handled pretty well if you ask me

No depth on that bench today again.

This ref is utter garbage.

KTF.

Wish it had been called off. Absolutely awful game, one of the worst I have seen. Not a single shot from either side!

Been the better side overall vs. Bolton in the opening 45, but Dion Charles somehow missed an open goal just before half time. Tight game. One goal will win it, I think.

We have been absolutely terrible today. Dion missed pretty much an open goal first half but we just aren’t at it and a mistake punished to go 1 down.

Ok Dion has missed an open goal and a one on one now. Jesus wept. I love Dion but he missed that sitter against Pompey too which cost us. Should have 25 goals this season

Os deservedly 1 0 vs Bolton.

Ref is so biased it's a joke - just sent wellens off for nothing, he's desperate for a draw.

9 without a win now. Can’t see it changing anytime soon, we’re in a relegation battle. Please can Appleton go

You’ve been the better side but I’d say we’ve had the better chances. Other than the mistake for the goal youve been restricted to shots from outside the box. But you weee definitely the better side on the ball today. We just didn’t show up. Charles should have had a couple for sure though.

Wellen’s red was because he stopped Randell Williams taking a quick throw deliberately. Defo won’t be overturned. As soon as he did it… it was obvious he was gonna go.

Think that’ll be the end of Matt Taylor. What a shambolic 6 months it’s been under him, 18 goals in 28 games… truly embarrassing. Just waiting on the announcement that we all crave now…

Totally inept ref deciding the outcome of a football match once again. Gavin Ward today.
Also noticing recently linos not keeping up with play, maybe many overdid it at xmas?

What a dreadful 90 minutes of football that was but in a game we had to ensure we did not to lose I’m happy with a dogged away point and clean sheet.

The ref was appaling but that's the norm in this league. It looked a clear penalty at the death for you. You are only a few players away from challenging the top 6. All the best for the rest of the season.

Can't believe your fans clapped that. It was awful. No one deserved anything from that, absolutely abysmal spectacle.

What a difference having some strikers makes.

Whilst Derby had majority of the ball, we had a host of chances today. Derby started both halves well, but we grew with confidence. Derby had a lot of long range chances, so many going high and wide. Taylor for ourselves could have scored a hatrick. His pace is ridiculous. 2 chances in 2 minutes first half where he ledt Cashin for dead, without a shadow of a doubt should led. Draper being an absolute nuisance too.

A great showing, didn't think much to Derby overall especially considering league position and points on the board.

What a refreshing change from the months of dross.

Eked out a 1-0 win at Fleetwood after the most comfortable of first halves where the hosts had absolutely nothing. They improved in the second half but ultimately we held on and I'm certain they'll be a League Two side next season.

We still need new signings to freshen things up if we're going to maintain an automatic promotion challenge.

Leyton Orient have sure had a good week!

Cheers pal, you too.
Funnily enough at the same end on Wednesday, Norwich get a pen for a blatant dive - The referee/Barton affect still lives on for his players
I also couldn't believe when we stuck a corner right under the bar and your keeper caught it going backwards and the ref gave a foul with none of our players near him. Ref rightly got some verbals at the end there walking off.
We had chances as we usually do, but wasted them as we usually do. Oh and gave away goals as we usually do. Season written off already and we havent made 1 signing in this window.

Deserved win for ourselves in a very tight game with Bolton, first half was very even but that Dion Charles miss is a huge moment in the game.

First ten minutes of the second half we was on it and putting Bolton under pressure - The goal came from Dan Agyei punishing some Bolton overplaying and slotting the chance away - He has made such a huge impact since he's regained his fitness from his injury, not only does he cause defences problems he can finish as well.

Bolton forced some moments at the end but seemed to panic infront of goal, blazing over both times with better options around - Don't think Sol Brynn had a proper save to make all game, but did very well to foil that 1v1 chance with Charles.

Wellens sending off has been threatening to come all season, I sit more or less behind the home dugout and he's always doing those little things to opponents and today was a step to far. Karl Robinson was sent off last week for Salford doing the same thing. Williams is gaining a few extra yards, but coaching staff now cannot get involved doing that now.

6 points off Bolton and Portsmouth in a week and 5 clean sheets in a row for the first time since 1971. Proper nose bleed territory right now.

Great second half today. Rode our luck first half in fairness but hung in there.
Powell in tears at the end hugging the players - so that suggests to me he is off..
Gutted if he is.

That is 90-odd minutes I'll never get back.

Utter dreadful from both sets of players and the officials. Summed up by the fact our captain told a kid to shut up during the game and is now on social media arguing with fans again.

Just seen that from Sweeney. Dangerous road giving it back to fans let alone a little 15yo kid

Gets worse and worse by the week.

February is brutal. Fully expect us to be in the bottom 4 by the end of it.
To me, your priorities should lie in a commanding centre half and a good and a defensive midfielder who can get his foot in and dictate a bit. I'm sure you are looking but from the outside it seems like you've spent the entire time chasing strikers.

Orient have come from nowhere and are on a real charge! Typically our game earlier in the season when they weren't up to much was postponed!

Another nail hammered into our coffin with Exeter’s point today.

7 points adrift having played a game more. Cheltenham remain 3 points ahead of us but have 3 games in hand on us. They could pull away with even a win and a draw in those games.

The way it’s going we’ll be officially relegated by Easter. But in reality we’re already as good as down. Shame for us.

You played well against us on new year's day. There's definitely something there but it'll take a hell of an upturn in form.

It's a shame you'll be heading back down but you'll invest well in the summer with the new owners and make an instant return. Chin up . There are still plenty of points left to play for.

Oh yeah I think we’ll stand a decent chance of competing to come back up. And I think if we did come back up we’d come back stronger and better prepared.

The pensioners never really wanted promotion and we were always going to struggle with their lack of backing and team we have.

Yeah we pretty much have to go over night from being the worst team in the league to being a top 10 bordering on playoff team. It just ain’t happening. All I’m hoping is we at least improve a bit, go down with some dignity and be in a position to have a go next season.
