Leyton Orient down to nine men after 14 minutes

League Two Leyton Orient followed up the sacking of manager Andy Hessenthaler on Monday by having two men dismissed in the opening 14 minutes on Tuesday against Plymouth.

First James Weir was sent off in the opening minute, before Jens Janse was given his marching orders on his debut.

To add insult, Orient were always 1-0 down thanks to a James Spencer strike.

League Two Leyton Orient have sacked manager Andy Hessenthaler, it has been confirmed.

The former Gillingham boss has left Brisbane Road following his side's 3-1 loss to Notts County on Saturday, which left the club sitting in 14th place in the league.

The club can confirm that Andy Hessenthaler has been relieved of his role as first team manager.

We would like to thank Andy for his service to Leyton Orient since arriving in July 2015 and wish him well in his future career.

Assistant manager Andy Edwards will be assuming Hessenthaler’s duties on an interim basis and will take charge of the team for tomorrow’s night’s Sky Bet League Two home game with Plymouth Argyle.
