Leeds United   1 - 0   Leyton Orient


Leeds 1 - 0 Leyton Orient

Leeds United 1 - 0 Leyton Orient

Max Gradel climbed off the bench to snatch an 89th-minute winner that sees Leeds retain a six point lead at the top of the League One table.

It was not a convincing victory, but on-loan Gradel settled the match when he turned and fired home from 12 yards.

Orient thought they had got the opener before that through Sean Thornton, but the referee ruled Andros Townsend had taken his free-kick set-up too quickly.

And Leeds then sealed a late win that makes it 20 home games without defeat.


Leeds United manager Simon Grayson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"It was an exciting end - I thought we were probably average for the most part of the game.

"I thought Orient played well and made it difficult for us and probably had the better chances, but you've got to give credit to my players.

"They keep going - they never know when we've not won a game and a little bit of individual brilliance from Max Gradel won us the game and obviously I'm delighted with the result."
