Sammy Moore bagged a brace to help Leyton Orient to third in League Two with victory over Notts County.

Moore stabbed the ball past goalkeeper Scott Loach to put Orient in front with his first goal for the club.

Jon Stead levelled after the break, steering home at the back post just 21 seconds after the restart.

Jay Simpson restored Orient's lead, pouncing on the rebound after Sean Clohessy's shot was saved before Moore added a third from 30 yards.

Leyton Orient manager Ian Hendon told BBC London 94.9:

Ian Hendon on Orient v Notts County

"It was tough. That wasn't an easy game at all. "But I was really pleased with how we battled.

"They were big and strong, they made seven changes from their team on Tuesday evening.

"That just goes to show how big a squad they've got and what a good squad they've got."
