Leyton Orient 2-0 Barnet

Two goals in as many second-half minutes gave Leyton Orient an opening-day victory over Barnet.

A dull game came to life when Jay Simpson controlled a Dean Cox cross in the box and spun to fire Orient, who were relegated from League One last season, into the lead

Less than 60 seconds later, Paul McCallum finished from close range.

Newly-promoted Barnet's best chance came in the first half, but Michael Gash prodded wide from close range.
