Leyton Orient came from behind to earn three valuable points with their fourth home win of the season from an entertaining 2-1 win against adventurous Rochdale.

At the end of an even first half, Rochdale broke the deadlock when Brian Barry-Murphy found unmarked striker Chris O'Grady beyond the far post and he first-timed it low into Orient's net.

Orient had posed periodic threats with Rochdale keeper Josh Lillis forced to dive at the feet of striker Alex Revell moments before the visitors went ahead.

The Londoners soon drew level when visiting midfielder Nicky Adams up-ended Dean Cox and Ben Chorley fired home the resulting penalty kick awarded by referee Kevin Wright after 49 minutes.

Orient went ahead with a neat move featuring Matthew Spring and captain Stephen Dawson split Rochdale's defence and allowed midfielder Cox to race clear and beat keeper Lillis in the 66th minute.

Rochdale made three substitutions after 72 minutes and O'Grady might have made more of a chance he lashed wide, while Orient's Revell forced a block by Lillis at the other end.
