Pressure continues to mount on Leyton Orient manager Ian Hendon

Mike Holden (@Ratings_Mike) takes a look at the under-fire Leyton Orient boss Ian Hendon, whose side have slipped nine points behind league leaders Oxford United following a run of just three wins in 15.

The pressure continues to mount on Leyton Orient boss Ian Hendon, and his approach to dealing with an irate fan following Saturday's draw with AFC Wimbledon is unlikely to do him any favours in his attempts to convince the doubters that he's the right man for the job.

The O's were held to a 1-1 draw by their London rivals, conceding a late equaliser from Adebayo Akinfenwa after losing forward John Marquis to a second yellow card early in the second half, and Hendon took issue with one supporter who was particularly vocal with his criticism after the final whistle, 'inviting' him into the dressing room for a chat after the game.

Speaking about the incident on local radio, Hendon said: "Some people want to shout and holler over a fence while I'm out on the pitch giving my players a bit of praise for hanging in there and getting a good point in the end.

"I just gave him the option if he wanted to come and speak to me in the dressing room. We said to security, if he wants to, bring him in. But he decided to go home. So he's alright while he's shouting at me over the hoardings there. If he wants to come and have a chat with me, no problem."

The former West Ham development coach was considered an underwhelming appointment by the Brisbane Road faithful in the summer, although he appeared to have answered his critics when landing the August Manager of the Month award, winning his first five matches by an aggregate score of 13-3.

However, the O's have only won three out of 15 league matches since then and now sit outside the play-off places, nine points adrift of the automatic promotion pace.
