Leyton Orient head coach Ross Embleton felt the game was fitting for the unveiling of the west stand being remained to the Justin Edinburgh stand.
The O's nabbed a 2-1 victory over one of Edinburgh's former clubs in Newport County on Saturday thanks to goals from Marvin Ekpiteta and Ruel Sotiriou at Brisbane Road.
The former assistant to the former Tottenham Hotspur defender Edinburgh thought it was a game that he would have enjoyed.
"I thought it was a very Justin Edinburgh type game, it was very exciting, it was up and at you with both teams trying to go on to win the game of football which I thought was quite fitting.
"It was a great gesture and all the clubs that we've been to that have celebrated his life, but to name a stand after him is a perfect tribute to a wonderful man, what it did do is rake up emotions and those feelings today (Saturday).
