Jay Simpson has scored six goals in nine appearances for Leyton Orient this season

Leyton Orient remain top of League Two after Jay Simpson's goal helped them earn a draw against Wycombe Wanderers.

Wycombe midfielder Matt Bloomfield put the visitors ahead with a close-range finish shortly before the break.

Simpson collected Blair Turgott's pass to fire home the equaliser with Orient's first shot on target.

The former Hull striker could have secured all three points when he was played through on goal late on, but his shot was pushed wide by Matt Ingram.

Leyton Orient manager Ian Hendon told BBC London 94.9:

Hendon on Orient v Wycombe

"It was a good point. We knew what we were coming into today, they're a tough side to beat.

"We'd have loved to have three points but it was a battling performance.

"We're not a one-plan team, we've got a few things up our sleeve if we need to."
