Leyton Orient delighted their big travelling support at Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday with a comfortable 3-1 win over their rivals.

Paul McCallum and a penalty from Lloyd James put Ian Hendon’s team in control at half time and a stunning free kick by Dean Cox before the hour mark wrapped up the points at Victoria Road.

Jamie Cureton pulled one back but the 1,456 O’s supporters left the ground happy after seeing their side pick up another three points.

Alex Cisak (7.5) – Another strong performance by the Orient goalkeeper, he made some impressive saves in the first half and a few at the start of the second period too, including a class one from Christian Doidge.

Sean Clohessy (7.5) – Right-back continues to show what a force he is in an attacking sense. Unlucky not to register an assist against Daggers but good display and solid defensively.

Connor Essam (8) – Young defender dealt well with Jamie Cureton and when he moved onto Doidge kept him quiet too. More and more impressed with the former Dover Athletic man with every passing week.

Mathieu Baudry (7.5) – French captain had another battle, this time with Doidge, but coped well after a tough opening period. Limped off but a good performance again.

Frazer Shaw (7) – Former West Ham man did his job with the minimum of fuss and looked solid at left-back, improving with each game.

Lloyd James (8) – The former Wales under-21 international dictated midfield perfectly and took his penalty well. His hundredth start for the club was a memorable one.

Bradley Pritchard (7) – Typically energetic display by the Zimbabwean, who ran himself into the ground, and his partnership with his fellow midfielders is blossoming.

Sammy Moore (7.5) – Best performance by Moore since he joined the O’s, his passing was better and he made various key tackles.

Dean Cox (8.5) – A clever flick assisted the opening goal for McCallum and then sealed the victory with a beautiful free kick. As Hendon mentioned after the game, his work rate was brilliant and he looks back to his best.

Jay Simpson (7.5) – Although he didn’t get on the scoresheet, he worked hard and occupied the Dagenham defence brilliantly. He is looking good.

Paul McCallum (8) – The big man was able to do his trademark celebration again and could have had more, hitting the crossbar after his headed opener. If he stays fit, he will score a lot this season.


Ollie Palmer, for McCallum 71. (6.5) – Not too much time to make an impression but Palmer worked extremely hard during his short cameo.

Alan Dunne, for Baudry 80.

Blair Turgott, for Simpson 87.
