George Sessions provides player ratings following the 3-0 victory against Stevenage

Leyton Orient moved to the top of League Two after scoring three times in the final 16 minutes at Brisbane Road to see off the challenge of Teddy Sheringham’s Stevenage.

Ian Hendon’s team had gone close on various occasions and also had a few nervous moments themselves before Jay Simpson opened the scoring in the 74th minute.

Blair Turgott doubled that advantage 10 minutes later before Ollie Palmer notched up his first goal for the club to make it a great night for the O’s.

It was another very good team performance with everyone, especially the substitutes, playing a big part in the triumph.

Alex Cisak (7.5) – The Australian saw an effort rebound off the post and onto his head early on, but remained sharp and focused and made some vital stops when needed.

Sean Clohessy (8) – He was a massive threat whenever he attacked and although he didn’t always offer the quality required, his pass for Turgott’s goal was perfect and his display was excellent again.

Connor Essam (7) – The defender showed his ability once more against Stevenage, winning lots in the air and doing his bit.

Mathieu Baudry (8) – Best performance of the season from the skipper, he looked a class above the Borough attackers in the second half and led in style.

Frazer Shaw (7) – Left-back got forward more as the game wore on and delivered some decent balls into the box.

Lloyd James (6.5) – The former Welsh under-21 international was subbed off on the hour mark after struggling to get O’s playing at a quick tempo. Still worked hard while he was on the pitch.

Bradley Pritchard (7.5) – Brilliant again from Pritchard, his energy levels remained at a high level and he got around the pitch very well all evening.

Sammy Moore (8.5) – An excellent display by the summer signing and his best in an Orient shirt. He sprayed so many balls across the pitch, which were perfect, and played wonderful pass in build up to Turgott’s goal. Top drawer performance and man of the match.

Dean Cox (8) – The diminutive midfielder added another assist to his tally and worked hard all evening. He keeps coming up with quality just when the O’s need it.

Jay Simpson (7.5) – Quiet night for Simpson up until the 74th minute when he hit the woodwork before heading in the opener. He delivered when he was needed, but worked hard throughout.

Paul McCallum (7) – The former West Ham forward cast a frustrated figure for much of the game after having a header cross the line that wasn’t given. He didn’t sulk, though, and continued to put in a shift.


Blair Turgott, for James 60. (8) – Opened his account for the club in some style, volleying into the net to finish a free flowing move. Looked a threat from the moment he was introduced.

Ollie Palmer, for McCallum 75. (8) – The big forward again worked his socks off and this time got his reward, making the most of a defensive error to poke into the corner. He will be a important player this year.

Alan Dunne, for Cox 82. Leyton Orient player ratings: Sammy shows he has Moore to offer
