Leyton Orient   3 - 1   Gillingham

Leyton Orient 3-1 Gillingham

Leyton Orient 3-1 Gillingham

Leyton Orient scored three times at home for the first time this season in a win over Gillingham.

Orient went ahead in the fifth minute with a superbly struck shot by Ryan Jarvis after Jimmy Smith set him up.

Keeper Jamie Jones then parried Mark McCammon's shot but Curtis Weston pounced on the loose ball to equalise.

Orient regained the lead eight minutes later when Sean Thornton lashed in from 20 yards and then secured the win when Smith curled into the top corner.

Gillingham were disappointed with referee Andy D'Urso's decision not to delay the kick-off, with three of his players stuck in traffic on their way to the game.


Gillingham boss Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:

"That decision surprised me.

"The referee was demanding the team sheet and I had three players on a tube between Stratford and Leyton and I couldn't make contact with them.

"I gambled and put two in the starting XI and one on the bench.

"It would have been nice to say an eight o'clock kick-off. But that didn't affect the result."

Referee Andy D'Urso told BBC Radio Kent:

"You consult with the safety officer and the advice from them was that there was no reason from a safety purpose to delay the kick-off.

"And there is no jurisdiction to delay a kick-off to allow for players to arrive at the ground.

"As long as they have enough players to start the game then the game should start at the specified kick-off time."
