Leyton Orient 4-1 Crawley Town

Chris Dagnall
Chris Dagnall was playing for Leyton Orient for the first time since his red card against Bradford

Leyton Orient beat Crawley for their second home league win of the season to climb up to 20th in League One.

Dean Cox put the hosts ahead with a well-struck 20-yard free-kick, before Jimmy Smith scrambled in an equaliser.

Chris Dagnall's header restored Orient's lead and David Mooney made it 3-1 after goalkeeper Brian Jensen parried Dagnall's effort.

Dagnall scored his second and Orient's fourth in injury time, finishing off Bradley Pritchard's cross.

Crawley Town boss John Gregory told BBC Surrey:

John Gregory: Crawley boss after loss to Leyton Orient

"We did everything we could with the players we had available and, particularly in the first half, I was happy with the shape in the team and the way we were using the system. Everything was pretty fluid and they had two opportunities on our goal and they scored with both, that was the frustrating thing.

"Brian Jensen played well today. He's been out in the cold and he came back into the side and he did very well and made some crucial saves.

"We are looking for more up top and we only had six subs today and we're down the the bare bones, but we have to battle on when we face Colchester on Sunday."
