Mansfield 1-1 Leyton Orient

Gary Alexander scored a late header to earn Leyton Orient a hard-fought draw in a scrappy clash at Mansfield.

The striker's last-gasp equaliser was a bitter blow for the Stags, who had seen Iyseden Christie's header rattle the crossbar just moments earlier.

Mansfield had started brighter and they were rewarded in the 13th minute when Luke Dimech tapped into the empty net from six yards to celebrate his first goal for the club.

After the break Orient midfielder David Hunt saw a powerful drive rocket off the inside of the post into a grateful Kevin Pilkington's arms before Alexander headed home from Jones' cross to equalise.

Leyton Orient: Morris, Joseph, Lockwood, Miller, Billy Jones, Brazier, Purser, Newey, Ebdon, Hunt, Alexander. Subs: Paul Jones, Stephens, Tate, Harnwell, Thorpe.
