Leyton Orient 1-2 Grimsby Town

Orient behind at the interval following a Jekyll and Hyde opening period performance. The afternoon had got off to a flyer for the East Londoners. Cypriot under 21 international, Ruel Sotiriou sent Conor Wilkinson clear – the former Dagenham & Redbridge man intern beating James McKeown with an emphatic left-footed finish.

But a lack of basic discipline and concentration proved costly as Orient floundered, allowing the visitors to turn the contest on its head just after the half-hour mark.

Firstly, Luke Waterfall’s header found the net following a George Williams flag-kick – O’s stopper, Lawrence Vigouroux perhaps left disappointed with his role in the Mariners leveller?

Then Williams provided the finish, latching onto Owen Windsor’s sublime reverse – Orient’s defensive frailties left ruthlessly exposed.
