Leyton Orient 5-1 Notts County

Kevin Lisbie

Kevin Lisbie scored twice as League One leaders Leyton Orient maintained the only 100% record in the the top five divisions in England with a classy win over bottom-of-the-table Notts County.

Lisbie's stooping header and his tidy finish put the O's on top at the break and Dean Cox struck to make it 3-0.

Notts substitute Danny Haynes headed home in a rare Notts attack.

But two cool late strikes from O's subs Shaun Batt and Jayden Stockley sealed a seventh successive league win.

The hosts never looked like failing to build on their best-ever start to a league season and coasted into a 3-0 lead soon after the restart.

Lisbie's excellent header from a Lloyd James free-kick and his follow-up finish - his eighth goal of the season - from Cox's shot made it 2-0 and as good as sealed the win against a Notts side who lacked confidence, quality and a goal threat throughout.

Cox fired in a third and, although Haynes gave the visitors something to cheer with a fine headed goal, Orient picked up the pace in the closing stages and Batt and Stockley ensured an emphatic and well-deserved win.

Notts remain rooted to the bottom of the table with just one point from seven games.
