Leyton Orient 2-1 Hereford

Adam Boyd struck the winner from the penalty spot as Leyton Orient came from behind to defeat Hereford.

Dean Beckwith had put the Bulls ahead with a header from a Simon Johnson corner that took a slight deflection on its way past keeper Glenn Morris.

John Melligan equalised in bizarre fashion when his cross from close to the byeline eluded Darren Randolph.

Another cross from Melligan was handled by Richard Rose and Boyd held his nerve to convert from the penalty spot.
