Leyton Orient 3-1 Chesterfield

Leyton Orient opened up a four-point lead at the top of the National League with a home win against Chesterfield.

The O's got off to the perfect start as Josh Koroma cut inside from the right and drilled the ball home in the eighth minute.

Charlie Lee was inches away from a second goal shortly afterwards, but Chesterfield were level before the break when Alex Kiwomya headed in a Lee Shaw cross - his third goal in two games.

The hosts started the second half on the front foot and Koroma saw a shot blocked on the line after Macauley Bonne's shot had been saved by goalkeeper Callum Burton.

Tom Denton was denied by Dean Brill at the other end before Marvin Ekpiteta prodded in a second for Orient from a Jobi McAnuff cross after 62 minutes.

Bonne secured the points from the penalty spot with five minutes remaining after McAnuff had been fouled.
