ORIENT manager Geraint Williams looked for the positives following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Carlisle United.

The O's were second best for long periods of the first half, but hit back after the break and when Scott McGleish put them ahead five minutes from time, O's looked set for their first home win.

A stoppage-time leveller wrecked those hopes and Williams admitted: "It's disappointing not to win. But if you look at the game as a whole, there looked to be two very tired teams, especially as we played 30 minutes extra-time on Wednesday. It was tough for both sides," he said.

"I challenged the players at half time to show me that they were not going to cave in, as they have played so many games.
