Leyton Orient’s form on the road had been very good before Saturday’s clash at Notts County, but that was all forgotten by 5pm.

The Magpies halted their own poor set of results at home to defeat the O’s 3-1 at Meadow Lane.

Goals from Jonathan Forte, Jon Stead and Aaron Collins ensured the east Londoners tasted defeat for the first time this season away from Brisbane Road.

Alex Cisak (5) – Made a few good saves in the first half, but should have come to collect the cross that led to the opener from Forte.

Nicky Hunt (6) – Looked competent and composed and only too happy to get forward whenever possible.

Yvan Erichot (5) – Was extremely fortunate not to concede a penalty for a foul on Forte midway through the second half, and made minimal effort to stop Collins from scoring the third.

Tom Parkes (6) – Was hindered somewhat by Erichot playing alongside him, leaving the ex-Bristol Rovers man to have to do the work of two at times.

Callum Kennedy (6) – Produced good deliveries from inviting areas for Orient, but allowed too many crosses to come in from his side.

Gavin Massey (5.5) – Was fairly anonymous after the first half, where he was regularly used as an outlet for any counter-attack from O’s.

Robbie Weir (5.5) – Won his fair share of tackles, but at times looked fairly lacklustre, especially in the second half.

Liam Kelly (6) – Did OK, like Weir, even if he was a little wasteful with possession on occasion.

Harry Cornick (5) – Was another to go missing and struggled to hit the heights of recent weeks.

Jay Simpson (5.5) – Found it tough in just his second start of the season, with many of his efforts only half-chances.

Paul McCallum (6.5) – Was probably Orient’s best player, for his work rate if nothing else as he continued to challenge well for any ball in the air from start to finish.

Substitutes:

Ulrich Nnomo, for Cornick 62. (5) – Failed to provide the injection of pace needed by Orient when they were chasing the game and defended abysmally for the Magpies’ third.

Sandro Semedo, for Massey 72. (6) – Provided good delivery for O’s and probably had a greater impact on the game in his brief cameo than Massey managed in 72 minutes.

Jordan Bowery, for Simpson 72. (6) – Showed great vision to set up McCallum for Orient’s goal and looks to have the foundation for a good partnership with his fellow striker.
