Leyton Orient 4-1 Yeovil

Leyton Orient cruised to victory over Yeovil Town with an impressive display.

The O's took control within three minutes when Ben Chorley headed in from close range after a long throw was flicked on by Nathan Clarke, and Ryan Brunt's powerful header made it 2-0.

Yeovil replied after the break when Sam Foley headed in Korey Smith's cross.

Jimmy Smith restored the home side's two-goal cushion, netting from three yards from Gary Sawyer's corner, and Kevin Lisbie's strike sealed the win.

The results sees Orient move up 13th place in the League One table, one point behind the Glovers.


Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"When you let four goals in you have to look at the defensive side of the team, not just the defence.

"We weren't winning on any part of the pitch.

"It would be quite easy to lose faith in this group when you've been beaten 4-1 and it's your third defeat.

"But we've got to keep working, help the young players get through it and make the old ones a bit fitter."
