Leyton Orient   4 - 2   Colchester

Leyton Orient 4-2 Colchester

Leyton Orient 4-2 Colchester

Leyton Orient eased their relegation worries with a thrilling win over Colchester United.

Dean Cox crossed in for Jimmy Smith to head home from 12 yards and Orient doubled their lead with a close-range effort from Alex Revell.

Antony Wordsworth's low shot brought the U's back into it before Paul-Jose Mpoku found the top corner for Orient.

Colchester hit back through an Ian Henderson solo effort but Jonathon Tehoue's strike sealed the points.


Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade told BBC London 94.9:
"I thought we showed great character and great patience at times.

"To lose 5-0 (in our last game) and want to play out from the back and ignore anything else that was going on was terrific credit to them.

"We got the goal I thought we deserved in the first period and went from there."

Colchester United manager John Ward told BBC Essex:
"I feel exactly as I should do after a 4-2 defeat, disappointed and surprised, as I have not really seem a soft performance from my group of players.

"I take nothing away from Leyton Orient, they capitalised on things and did very well.

"It was one of the softest performances my team have put in this season."
