Accrington Stanley 1-0 Leyton Orient

Scott Brown
Scott Brown's goal kept up Stanley's record of scoring in every home game this season - the only club in England to do so

A Scott Brown goal was enough for Accrington Stanley to overcome Leyton Orient and stay just a point off the automatic League Two promotion spots.

Midfielder Brown's goal came in the 51st minute, when he fired the ball home from 12 yards out.

Substitute Ollie Palmer came close to levelling for Orient in the 75th minute only for Ross Etheridge to deny him.

The victory keeps Stanley in fifth, while the O's drop to eighth, one place out of the play-offs.
