Leyton Orient 4-1 Crewe Alexandra

Dean Cox
Dean Cox has played over 200 games for Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient recorded their first home league win of the season with victory over fellow strugglers Crewe.

Gianvito Plasmati gave Orient the lead after good play from Chris Dagnall, before Dagnall doubled the lead with a low drive.

Dean Cox added a third for Orient from close range, but a superb long-range shot from Anthony Grant pulled one back for the Alex.

Dagnall then teed up David Mooney late on to complete the victory for the O's.

Crewe are now without a win in their last six games in all competitions and drop to the bottom of League One.

Leyton Orient manager Mauro Milanese told BBC London 94.9:

Milanese on Leyton Orient v Crewe

"It was very important to win and have a clean sheet. The lads played very well and were fantastic during the week, so I was confident today they would put in a good performance.

"I'm happy for the support and that the boys can enjoy it. It was the first league victory at home - it was good.

"I was disappointed with the goal we conceded because I was preparing this game and did not want them to score but, because we were defending too deep, we needed to stop him a while before."
