Salford City 1-1 Leyton Orient

Liam Hogan's late own goal earned Leyton Orient a 1-1 draw and denied Salford victory in their first National League game.

Summer signing Rory Gaffney volleyed home for Salford early in the second half, but Graham Alexander's side came under late pressure and Hogan deflected Craig Clay's shot into his own net in the 88th minute.

The hosts, owned by a consortium that includes former Manchester United players, have won three promotions in four seasons and made an encouraging start to life in English football's fifth tier.

After going close in the first half, they took a deserved 47th-minute lead when Gaffney converted Danny Lloyd's left-wing cross.

But Salford, taken over by Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt in 2014, came unstuck with two minutes left as Clay's shot hit Hogan and went into the net.
