Leyton Orient   2 - 1   Norwich

Leyton Orient 2-1 Norwich

Leyton Orient 2-1 Norwich

Sean Thornton struck twice for Leyton Orient as they eased their relegation fears with a shock win over League One leaders Norwich.

Scott McGleish set up Thornton for a close-range opener after three minutes.

Korey Smith fired in from the edge of the area to pull Norwich level, but with half-time nearing Thornton headed home a Charlie Daniels free-kick.

Daniels later went close for Orient, while Norwich substitute Stephen Hughes hit the bar at the death.

It was a result that shredded the form book - Orient's second victory in 14 games and first under new manager Russell Slade, denying Norwich the chance to consolidate their hold on top spot.

Instead, Orient hauled themselves four points clear of the relegation places while the gap between Norwich and third-placed Millwall now stands at seven points.

Leeds, who won 3-1 at Carlisle, are second on 80 points, six behind the Canaries with four games to go.


Norwich Manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:

"We never got going, never got off on the front foot and lost two really bad goals, even at 1-1 the second goal we lost was poor.

"That's the worst we've been for a while, we'll have to pick ourselves up and go again, we're still sitting at the top so we'll have to pick ourselves up.

"We've still got a really good lead so another two home games, and a hard game this Saturday, there's no need to panic."
