Luton Town 1-1 Leyton Orient

Jay Simpson scored his fifth goal in four games to earn a point for Leyton Orient at Luton Town.

Luton striker Jack Marriott had a header saved by Alex Cisak early on, before he turned in Dan Potts's cross from close range to open the scoring.

Marriott could have doubled the lead shortly after, but he fired wide of goal when unmarked inside the box.

Simpson slotted in the equaliser from Sean Clohessy's cross, while Marriott wasted another good chance late on.

Leyton Orient boss Ian Hendon told BBC Radio London:

Hendon on Luton v Orient

"It was always going to be a tough game and that's how it turned out, especially when we go a goal down.

"We were very disappointed in the way we conceded the goal; the plan today was not to give away cheap, sloppy goals and a deflected ball in the box, someone not doing their job and they get a tap-in.

"I think you had two teams there tonight trying to win the game. We didn't sit there and defend."
