Jay Simpson has played at a higher level for Hull City

Leyton Orient continued their 100% winning record in League Two this season with a comfortable win over Bristol Rovers at Brisbane Road.

Lloyd James gave the home side the lead from the penalty spot after James Clarke had fouled Paul McCallum.

On the stroke of half time Dean Cox set up Jay Simpson who fired home to double Orient's advantage.

The away side's best effort came through Clarke, but he skied over from close range as Orient sealed victory.

Leyton Orient manager Ian Hendon told BBC London 94.9:

"It was another good performance and again another good result.

"We said all week that it was going to be a tough game as we know they record away from home and they are very organised.

"There were two teams who were full-blooded and it was a difficult game to referee. It was a good team performance."
