Leyton Orient 3-2 York City

Jay Simpson
Jay Simpson (centre) has scored 13 goals for Leyton Orient this season

Jay Simpson scored twice as Leyton Orient earned a narrow win over York.

The victory comes after the O's squad were made to spend all week in a hotel by owner Francesco Becchetti after the 3-1 defeat by Hartlepool last week.

Mathieu Baudry headed in and Simpson scored before the Minstermen pulled one back when Bryn Morris deflected Vadaine Oliver's effort in.

Simpson drilled home to make it 3-1 before Oliver headed in late on, but Orient held on for the victory.

Leyton Orient manager Ian Hendon speaks to BBC Radio London:

Hendon post York

"I wouldn't say vital, but it's another victory and it's another three points towards the total.

"I think we created more than them, they had a couple of chances towards the end but on the whole yet again we've controlled the game and could have come out much bigger victors.

"We've got a back four there that have not played together, we've got two new centre halves in the side, there's going to be a little bit of time before they get settled."

York City manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Radio York:

McNamara on Leyton Orient v York

"I thought they were the better side for the first 20 minutes. They started brightly with a good effort early on.

"I thought we came in to the game but I was disappointed again with the early goals that we lost.

"We got a lifeline going into half-time and I thought there was a real opportunity in the second half to go on and win the match - and we lose another goal.

"We had some good opportunities to score goals today and I'm very angry with the goals we lost."
