Leyton Orient completed a fine second-half comeback with a winner in the sixth minute of stoppage time to beat Mansfield, having trailed 2-0 at half-time.

Danny Rose put the Stags ahead with a 12th-minute penalty after he was brought down by Marvin Ekpiteta, having been sent into the box by Otis Khan's superb pass.

Orient left-back Joe Widdowson then bizarrely fouled Kellan Gordon as he seemed to be heading out of the box in the 29th minute and Rose buried his spot-kick down the centre.

Khan was so close to a third after 40 minutes but saw his 25-yard free-kick come back off the O's crossbar.

Orient finally grabbed their first goal in four games when Conor Wilkinson headed home from close range from Louis Dennis' acrobatic cross in the 64th minute.

Lee Angol levelled with 12 minutes to go, tucking the ball home through the keeper's legs from a tight angle from Wilkinson's pass, and in the sixth minute of added time Angol broke down the left and crossed low for Jordan Maguire-Drew to finish from close range and give the visitors all three points.
