Goals in either half helped Leyton Orient stretch their unbeaten run to 11 matches with victory over Notts County.
Dean Cox slid the hosts in front early on after a magnificent through-ball from Tommy Carroll.
Alex Revell missed a great chance to make it 2-0 from the spot when he shot straight at goalkeeper Stuart Nelson after Ricky Ravenhill's handball.
But the hosts did find a second goal on 79 minutes when Andrew Whing met a Cox free-kick with a diving header.
It was a disastrous day for Notts who arrived just 45 minutes before kick-off because of bad traffic and saw boss Paul Ince sent to the stands.
Ince allegedly threw a cup of tea at O's chief scout Kevin Dearden in a fracas following the award of Orient's penalty.
Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade told BBC London 94.9: "I thought we dominated long periods of the game and the only travesty of the first half is that we weren't more than one goal up.
"We created a number of really good chances and played some really attractive football."
Slade on the tea incident:
"To be honest I didn't see what happened, all of a sudden I saw some water come towards our dugout, it flared up a bit but these things happen - it's football."
Notts County assistant manager Alex Rae said: "We never got to grips with them in the first half and, to be fair to them, they played some really good football.
"We made some amendments at half-time and I think prior to getting their second goal we looked as if we were the team on the front foot.
"It was a body blow to concede the second from another set play."
