Orient ease relegation fears: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Leyton Orient moved out of the League One relegation zone with a 2-0 home win against Yeovil.

Orient had marginally the better of the first half and they took the lead after 15 minutes when centre-back Tamika Mkandawire found the net via a deflection and both posts.

Orient debutant Nicky Adams - on loan from Leicester - had a shot cleared off the line, but the Glovers had their chances, with Orient keeper Jamie Jones saving shots from Stefan Stam, Jonathan Obika and Dean Bowditch.

Adam Chambers forced Yeovil keeper Alex McCarthy to make a save early in the second half, but Orient doubled their lead 11 minutes from time.

The goal came from a disputed corner which was taken by Jason Demetriou and striker Scott McGleish headed home his ninth goal of the season.

Yeovil never looked like getting back into the game after that and Orient held on for three precious points.
