Leyton Orient 3-0 Solihull Moors

Unbeaten Leyton Orient stormed to second in the National League table following a hard-fought 3-0 victory over 10-man Solihull Moors.

Centre-back Marvin Ekpiteta nearly headed Orient into an early lead before home goalkeeper Dean Brill pulled off a stunning double save to deny Corey O'Keefe and Kyle Storer.

The hosts went ahead with the final touch of the first half as Charlie Lee headed home a corner in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Solihull were reduced to 10 men after 56 minutes when defender Jamie Reckord picked up two yellow cards in quick succession.

Macauley Bonne and Matt Harrold sealed maximum points with two late goals to leave Orient behind Harrogate on goal difference.
