Leyton Orient   2 - 0   Walsall

Leyton Orient 2-0 Walsall

Sean Thornton's second-half brace secured victory for Leyton Orient against Walsall to end the home side's run of seven games without a win.

Walsall had their chances, with goalkeeper Glenn Morris saving at the feet of striker Troy Deeney.

Orient went ahead when defensive uncertainty allowed Aaron Doran's cross to reach Thornton, who slotted home.

Thornton's second goal was set up by good approach work on the right from Jonathan Tehoue and Scott McGleish.


Leyton Orient manager Geraint Williams told BBC London 94.9:

"When you get three points, it's big.

"Today it was about getting back to basics.

"I thought we did that on a difficult pitch against a good team.

"We thoroughly deserved the win today."
