Jobi McAnuff’s low drive 16 minutes from time was enough to give Leyton Orient all three points against Oxford United last weekend.

He smashed into the bottom corner to put Kevin Nolan’s men in front after they had began to dominate at the Kassam Stadium.

They lost captain Mathieu Baudry to a red card in stoppage time, but defended excellently and the victory moves them up to seventh.

Alex Cisak (7) – Quiet day at the office for the O’s number one, but made decent stop from Kemar Roofe’s free kick in the second half – that was his only save.

Nicky Hunt (8.5) – Top drawer from the experienced defender who won everything in the air, made a stunning tackle on Danny Hylton when it was goalless. Former Bolton Wanderers ace dealt with Roofe well too and was excellent.

Mathieu Baudry (7.5) – Orient skipper would have got higher mark if he hadn’t received a harsh red card. Another impressive display, but could now be missing until April 9.

Shaun Brisley (8) – The Peterborough United loanee was colossal at the back, marshalling the back four well and a rock throughout.

Jerome Binnom-Williams (8) – Like rest of the defence, very encouraging in his own box and pretty good further down the pitch too.

Sean Clohessy (7) – Although the right-back did a good job of doubling up on Roofe on the right, he missed two superb chances to give his team the led.

Nigel Atangana (7.5) – Just got stronger and stronger as the match wore on and was blocking anything he could – excellent from the midfielder.

Kevin Nolan (8) – First 45 was arguably the best player on the pitch, his touch was sensational and awareness as well as movement a class above. Again tired in second, but made his presence felt at the Kassam Stadium.

Jobi McAnuff (8.5) – Like most of his team mates, solid in first half and excellent after the break. He continuously drove Orient on and thoroughly deserved to score the winner.

Calaum Jahraldo-Martin (6) – Frustrating afternoon for Hull City loanee who was given a chance up top, but couldn’t compete physically with Yellows back four.

Jay Simpson (7) – Quiet again from League Two’s top goalscorer, but got more into the game when Armand Gnanduillet was introduced.

Substitutes:

Armand Gnanduillet, for Jahraldo-Martin 62. (7.5) – A bold move to bring him on, but worked as he gave Oxford various problems.

Ollie Palmer, for Simpson 84.

Connor Essam, for Gnanduillet 90.
