Leyton Orient   1 - 0   Oldham

Highlights - Leyton Orient 1-0 Oldham

Leyton Orient 1-0 Oldham

Substitute Paul-Jose M'Poku's stunning late strike helped Leyton Orient extend their unbeaten league run to 14 games as they defeated Oldham.

The home side dominated the first half but were kept at bay by Oldham goalkeeper Ben Amos, who denied Jonathan Tehoue and Dean Cox.

Oldham, without a win in nine games, looked destined for a hard-fought draw.

But M'Poku, on loan from Tottenham, came on to win the game, firing in from 25-yards after a pass from Dean Cox.


Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade told BBC London 94.9:
"Oldham were very resilient, they defended very well at times.

"I thought we created enough chances to win the match but to be honest their goalkeeper made a couple of decent saves.

"It bit scrappy in the second half, but fortunately for us, we made some substitutions and they paid off."

Oldham Athletic player-manager told BBC Radio Manchester:
"It is a bit sickening and I'm absolutely gutted for my players as I thought they were excellent today.

"We really frustrated one of the form teams in the country and I felt for large parts of the game we were the better team.

"He's (James Tarkowski) a great kid and a good defender and you would never have guessed he was an 18-year-old making his debut and he's given a man's performance today."
