Southend 1-2 Leyton Orient
Debut duo Sean Thornton and Adam Boyd scored as Leyton Orient started the new season with a win.

Mark Gower converted a Alan McCormack cross to put Southend ahead but Thornton equalised in spectacular style with a 30-yard free kick.

Orient dominated after McCormack was dismissed for a second bookable offence although Wayne Gray and Boyd directed weak shots straight at Darryl Flahavan.

Boyd eventually converted an Efe Echanomi cross with four minutes left.
