Ross Embleton was left confused as to how Leyton Orient were not awarded a penalty in their goalless draw against Bradford City.

Midway through the second half, in the middle of a relentless period of pressure from the O's, Lee Angol was pulled down in the area just as he was about to shoot.

Instead of pointing to the spot, though, referee Christopher Pollard signalled for another corner, much to the dismay of the home players and fans.

Speaking after the game, Embleton said: "I didn't think the handball one was handball. He came lunging out and it wasn't even one I appealed for. But Lee Angol's is a penalty. 

"I don't know what the ref is looking at because it's not like a melee, someone's lost his man and got pulled back and there are bodies in the way. Everybody is looking at Lee Angol ready to smash it in the goal, he gets pulled down and for some reason he doesn't see it, and when you ask the assistant, he hasn't seen it as well.

"I walked past him at the end there and said to him 'you'll have a sleepless night once you watch that one because you got it wrong' and laughed at me and I said 'no, just because I said it nice, I mean it'. I hope he does have a sleepless night because it was a penalty."

Overall, Embleton had mixed feelings about his side's performance. On the balance of play, Orient perhaps deserved something more than Bradford did and it would have been a big shock for them to defeat the play-off chasing Bantams, but the interim head coach also felt as though his side wasted too many good opportunities.

He said: "I feel like standing here a little bit disappointed is a good thing, as ridiculous as that sounds. We've worked really well this week on how we felt we could stop Bradford. Albeit, we're at home and in the past we've been so used to winning and teams coming here and finding it difficult against us. We had to respect the level of the opposition and the level of players they've got. I thought we executed that gameplan really well.

"I suppose the reason why I'm disappointed is the fact that with a few margins and a little bit more finesse around the goal, it could have led to us winning the game."

Despite Orient's disappointment at not nicking something from the game, Bradford could quite easily have done so themselves were it not for goalkeeper Sam Sargeant, who produced a brilliant save late on to deny James Vaughan.

Embleton said: "There have been times where those have gone in, where it's gone through a few bodies. It looked like it was going to sink into the bottom corner and he did great not only to save it, I think it's the fact he held onto it, because the striker was reacting and getting onto it. Sam managed not to just save it but to keep it within his grasp which was massive."
