Oldham 2-0 Leyton Orient

In-form Oldham Athletic made it three wins in four games with a comfortable win over Leyton Orient.

Matt Derbyshire opened the scoring with his fifth goal of the season from close range, with Orient manager Russell Slade insistent he handled the ball.

Jose Baxter sealed the points after turning on the edge of the area and curling home into the top right corner.

Martin Rowlands had Orient's best chance of the game but his effort was saved by Oldham keeper Dean Bouzanis.


Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade told BBC London 94.9:

"I thought we were excellent for 77 minutes against a really good Oldham side.

"We knew they were in really good form.

"I thought our defensive shape was excellent, they're a threat from set plays.

"We didn't deal with the set play but it was a blatant handball and that hurts."
