Bournemouth 3-1 Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient scored two own goals as Bournemouth maintained their promotion challenge with a victory at Dean Court.

Billy Jones conceded the first in the ninth minute, heading in a Warren Cummings centre from the left.

Orient's second own goal came eight minutes later when Matt Joseph got the last touch after James Hayter attempted to finish off a cross from Steve Fletcher.

Fletcher went close in the 34th minute with a low shot as Bournemouth dominated the first half.

Leyton Orient goalkeeper Lee Harrison was in superb form in the second-half to keep his team in contention.

He denied Warren Feeney three times in a five-minute spell before the Northern Ireland striker finally got on the scoresheet.

Feeney accepted a pass from Marcus Browning and beat Harrison with a powerful right-foot shot from the edge of the area for his eighth goal of the season.

Harrison continued his heroics by turning a shot from Hayter over the bar and then getting down to keep out a goal-bound shot from Cummings.

But Orient staged a late rally with Kevin Stephens going close five minutes from time.

Striker Lee Thorpe finally got a consolation for the visitors with a superb 30 yard strike close to full-time.
