Match ends, Leyton Orient 5, Gillingham 1.
Leyton Orient kept their slim chances of automatic promotion alive with an impressive win against Gillingham.
David Mooney's angled shot opened the scoring and Dean Cox's volley made it 2-0 inside the opening 10 minutes.
The game was over as a contest when Kevin Lisbie fired in Moses Odubajo's cross and then, a minute later, pounced on a mistake to tee-up Mooney's second.
Chris Dagnall beat three players to add a fifth before Craig Fagan scored the Gills a late, close-range consolation.
The win was Orient's first in six matches and mathematically secures them at least a play-off spot.
