Two goals from Theo Robinson and one from Harry Pell earned Colchester United a 3-1 away win at Leyton Orient.

On a rain-swept afternoon at Brisbane Road, Colchester dominated for much of the game.

Pell's header was cleared off the line before Robinson's 41st-minute opener after fine work down the right side by Ryan Jackson.

The U's continued to dominate and Kwame Poku struck a post just after the break before Luke Gambin was denied by a fine save by Sam Sargeant.

Pell then doubled Colchester's advantage in the 64th minute when O's keeper Sargeant parried a cross and the midfielder netted from close range.

Orient responded with Matt Harrold and Jordan Maguire-Drew going close before substitute Ruel Sotiriou reduced the deficit in the 86th minute.

But on-loan Southend striker Robinson had the last word, securing the points when he curled a shot into the net in the first minute of added time.
