Match ends, Cambridge United 1, Leyton Orient 1.
Jay Simpson's fifth league goal of the season helped rescue a point for table-topping Leyton Orient at Cambridge.
The away side should have taken the lead midway through the first-half but Simpson could only hit the post after rounding keeper Chris Dunn.
Half-time substitute Jacob Blyth gave the U's the lead from close range following good play by Liam Hughes.
The visitors soon levelled when Simpson fired home Mathieu Baudry's lofted pass as the game ended in a draw.
Cambridge United manager Richard Money told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:
"I think the way the game has gone, some days it's important not to lose.
"We were playing against a team who were top of the league, and they've played like that. We on the other hand are playing like a team that have just lost a little bit of confidence in our ability and our structure.
"We need to get it back pretty quickly.
Leyton Orient manager Ian Hendon speaks to BBC London 94.9:
"I've just seen some of the shots we had on target in the first half and I don't think their keeper's going to have a day like he's had today for a very long time.
"Against the run of play they've got one, rocked us a little bit for a while but then we got back in the game and credit to the boys, especially after last week's result.
"We ended up getting a point and had a lot more pressure towards the end of the game."
