Southampton   2 - 1   Leyton Orient

Southampton 2-1 Leyton Orient

Southampton 2-1 Leyton Orient

Adam Lallana scored a goal in each half as Southampton came from behind to beat managerless Leyton Orient.

The O's went ahead in the second minute when John Spicer touched home after James Scowcroft flicked on Charlie Daniels' long throw.

Lallana fired into the top right corner from 20 yards to level on 41 minutes.

He headed in to make it 18 for the season after 54 minutes to heap the pressure on Orient, who sacked boss Geraint Williams on Saturday.


Southampton manager Alan Pardew told BBC Radio Solent:

"We didn't start well but our reaction was to dig in.

"We just had to grind this result out, which we did, and I'll give the players credit for that.

"We still feel we're in it, we just have to keep winning the games and we'll keep grinding away."

Leyton Orient caretaker manager Kevin Nugent told BBC London 94.9:

"We've only had one day to recover before coming down to Southampton."

"It was always going to be a difficult game."

"We put on a really spirited performance, we went one up early on, and held on to it for a while."
