Bristol Rovers   1 - 2   Leyton Orient

Jimmy Smith's second-half goal made it a happy return to the west country for Leyton Orient boss Geraint Williams.

JJ Melligan fired Orient ahead from close range shortly before half-time.

But striker Rickie Lambert - last season's 29-goal hot-shot - opened this season's account with a low shot after Aaron Lescott's effort was blocked.

But the visitors took the points when Smith lifted the ball over debutant goalkeeper Fraser Forster and into the top corner from the edge of the box.


Leyton Orient manager Geraint Williams told BBC London 94.9:
"I was pleased not just with the result but the performance.

"We started quite strong, were very solid and we grew into the game. We're thoroughly delighted with the performance.

"We were disappointed not to be winning at half-time but delighted to leave the pitch at the end winning."
