Leyton Orient 4-0 Havant & Waterlooville

Leyton Orient became the new leaders of the National League following a crushing victory over Havant & Waterlooville.

The home side were rewarded for a bright start with two goals in the opening 20 minutes.

James Dayton's free-kick was poked goalwards by Charlie Lee and although Ben Dudzinski saved, Josh Coulson tapped in the loose ball to open the scoring.

The O's doubled their advantage through an own goal five minutes later when a Jobi McAnuff corner missed Macauley Bonne at the near post but inadvertently went in off Theo Lewis.

Orient were rampant and, after Craig Clay came close, Lee made it three after 39 minutes, winning the ball and driving forward before firing a low shot into the bottom corner.

Dayton saw two shots saved as Orient started the second half in a similar vein.

Bonne's well-struck shot came back off the inside of a post but he did get the goal he deserved shortly afterwards, tucking in a pass from Clay to seal a convincing win.

Orient move a point clear at the top of the table as Salford and Wrexham both dropped points.
