Leyton Orient's assistant manager Kevin Nugent said it was two points dropped after a last-gasp equaliser saw his side draw 1-1 at Bury.

Lateef Elford-Alliyu, 19, who arrived on loan from West Brom earlier in the week, scored with his first touch to rescue a point for the Shakers after Orient skipper Matthew Spring had curled an outstanding 20-yard effort into the top corner to give his side a first-half lead.

Nugent said: "We're not satisfied. We feel it was two points dropped really. The performance was a good performance, we created numerous chances and should've probably been 3-0 up at half-time.

"Obviously we went in at 1-0 and when you're missing chances like that, the other team can have one and take a point.

"It's disappointing, but it's still a good point. It was good that Jonathan Tehoue was getting chances. He was a real threat and it was good to see that, but we would've liked to convert a few more chances.

"We felt it was quite even second half and we still had a few chances. George Porter came on and had a few and we had a couple of corners, so we probably should've done something. Bury are a decent side, but play quite open so we always felt we could get at them."
