Leyton Orient 1-2 Hartlepool United

Hartlepool made it four wins from a five-game unbeaten run as they came from behind to beat Leyton Orient.

The home side opened the scoring in the 18th minute when David Mooney's shot from Josh Koroma's perfectly weighted through-ball was well saved by goalkeeper Scott Loach but the loose ball was tucked away by Jobi McAnuff.

Macauley Bonne came agonisingly close to a second as his half-volley across the keeper came back off the left-hand post.

Pools came back into the game as half-time approached and equalised in stoppage time when Jonathan Franks smartly turned the ball home after a free-kick had not been dealt with by the Orient defence.

And it was 2-1 to the visitors just 69 seconds into the second half when Nicky Deverdics' pinpoint free-kick was superbly headed home by Rhys Oates.

Hartlepool forward Ryan Donaldson's deflected shot hit the right-hand upright, while at the other end Bonne was denied by Loach and Koroma had a goal ruled out for offside as the visitors held on.
