Leyton Orient 1-3 Bournemouth

Bournemouth ended their five-game losing run with victory against 10-man Leyton Orient.

Harry Arter fired home a penalty after Wesley Thomas was brought down but the O's levelled when Mathieu Baudry deflected in Dean Cox's shot.

Scott Cuthbert was sent off for a reckless challenge before Thomas turned home the rebound after Shaun Cooper hit the crossbar from 20 yards.

Thomas then set up Marc Pugh to score from close range.


Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury told BBC Radio Solent:

"We showed a maturity out there, kept the ball moving and wore them down. In the end we got what we deserved - a couple of goals and three points.

[Wes Thomas] has been brilliant since he's come in and gives us a different outlet up front. He's strong, he's quick and he holds the ball up really well.

"We've showed that whatever has happened in the past is behind us and as a club and we're moving forward."
