Leyton Orient 0-1 Fleetwood Town

Fleetwood moved up to ninth in League One with victory over relegation-threatened Leyton Orient.

Chris Dagnall had the best chance of the first-half, but his effort was excellently saved by Fleetwood goalkeeper Chris Maxwell.

After the break, Jamie Proctor released Gareth Evans, who fired home from 15 yards to give the away side the lead.

Orient's Kevin Lisbie and Dagnall had chances to equalise late on, but the visitors held on for the win.

Leyton Orient defender Scott Cuthbert told BBC London 94.9:

"We switched off and it was an easy goal for them and that's disappointing for us."

"It was one of those days - it was massively frustrating.

"We seem to be having a lot of these at the moment at home, but we've got to keep working hard and hopefully our luck will turn."
