CALUM WOODS was one of the few to earn the praise of  boss Lee Clark as Huddersfield Town were held 2-2 at home to Leyton  Orient.

But the 24-year-old close-season  recruit, who made his fourth  consecutive appearance at  left-back, said the outcome of the  Galpharm clash took the gloss of  any plaudits.

“It’s not about individual  performances – it’s about the team,  and we were all disappointed to  have led 2-0 and not won the  match,” said the ex-Dunfermline  player, whose second-half yellow  card for pulling back George Porter  left him just one more caution off a  one-match suspension.

Porter was also involved in the  incident which brought Jamie  McCombe a straight red card, after  which Orient struck twice.

But Woods insisted: “We’re  gutted to have conceded two goals  in the way we did, and we know we  should have done better in the  closing stages.”

It was a second stalemate  running for Town after the 1-1 draw  at MK Dons and Woods added:  “We’ve dropped rather than gained  points over the last two games.

“We know we have to work hard  this week and ensure we’re fully  prepared to get back to winning  ways at Brentford this Saturday.”

While Town are eighth in League  I, it was only a third point of the  season for Orient, who remain  bottom.

Boss Russell Slade, whose injury  problems meant he named only  four rather than the five permitted  substitutes, said: “All afternoon I  felt we deserved something out of  the game.

“Even in the first period I thought we created one or two  wonderful opportunities for an  away side.

“Fair play to the lads, we stuck to our guns, we kept going and we got something for it.”

Meanwhile Ipswich were watching Town for the third match running.

After manager Paul Jewell saw  the 3-0 win at Sheffield United and  1-1 draw at MK Dons, the  Championship club had scout  Mike Gillies on duty at the  Galpharm on Saturday.
