Fleetwood Town 1-1 Leyton Orient

Stephen Dobbie
Stephen Dobbie scored his first goal for Fleetwood to earn a point

Stephen Dobbie extended Fleetwood's unbeaten start to the League One season with a late goal against Leyton Orient.

O's goalkeeper Adam Legzdins saved from strikers David Ball and Jamie Proctor before Mathieu Baudry headed against the post for the visitors.

Darius Henderson finally put Orient in front when he headed under keeper Chris Maxwell from Jobi McAnuff's free-kick.

But substitute Dobbie earned Fleetwood a late point with a low finish on the turn past Legzdins.

The home side nearly won it late on but Legzdins denied Gareth Evans after a counter-attack.

The result sees Fleetwood move down a place to second with 11 points from five games whilst Leyton Orient remain 14th.

Fleetwood assistant manager Chris Lucketti told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"I'm delighted with a point. I thought we thoroughly deserved it and were good value for it as well.

"We started well for the first 30 minutes and had a couple of chances which we should have taken.

"They're a danger from set-pieces and the goal knocked us back.

"We were still suffering a little bit, but we finished fantastic and thoroughly deserved our equaliser."

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade told BBC London 94.9:

Slade on Fleetwood v Leyton Orient

"To be honest, they were the better team for the first 20 minutes, they created a couple of opportunities.

"It took us a little bit of time to settle down but once we did settle, we seemed to get on top a little bit.

"We should have stopped the goal, the boys, myself, the staff, everybody will all be very disappointed with the one we've conceded, but we should have also broke their heart really by getting a second goal.

"We'd worn them down, it's just a pity because it would have been a conclusion to a great week for us."
