Leyton Orient 3-1 Solihull Moors

Leyton Orient got their National League campaign up and running with victory at home to Solihull Moors.

Orient suffered a 2-0 defeat at Sutton on Saturday in their first outing since relegation from League Two last term, but they bounced back in style on Tuesday night.

Skipper Charlie Lee poked in Jobi McAnuff's corner during a first half which saw Orient hit the woodwork three times, before David Mooney converted from close range in the 47th minute.

Oladapo Afolayan fired in following a smart one-two with Tom Tonks in the 76th minute for Solihull, whose opening game with Chester was called off due to safety concerns at their stadium

But George Elokobi's header restored Orient's two-goal advantage shortly afterwards.
