Leyton Orient put in a classy performance at Morecambe on Saturday to return to east London with all three points in League Two.

Andy Hessenthaler’s men took the lead in the 27th minute when Liam Kelly fired past Shrimps goalkeeper Barry Roche from distance.

Kevin Ellison equalised for the hosts, but Jordan Bowery’s deflected strike in the 55th minute earned the O’s a deserved win.

While the result was impressive, the best aspect of the day was the solid showing from Orient at the back and the work rate all over the pitch.

Alex Cisak (6.5) – The Australian made one good save early on, but was hardly required afterwards.

Nicky Hunt (8) – One of his best performances in an Orient shirt, blocking crucial efforts, making key clearances and using his experience throughout.

Yvan Erichot (8) – Not the biggest fan of the defender, but he looked a lot better at the weekend and didn’t make too many mistakes.

Tom Parkes (7) – Would have got an eight if it wasn’t for poor clearance which led to Morecambe’s equaliser. Other than that another strong display.

Callum Kennedy (8) – Former Swindon Town trainee brings more composure to the back four and did well at both ends of the pitch - has to be a regular now.

Gavin Massey (7) – Ex-Colchester United winger worked extremely hard on the left and threatened at times like when he bended an effort wide in the first half.

Robbie Weir (8) – Brilliant performance from the skipper who looks fully fit again now. He protected the back four well and broke up play excellently.

Liam Kelly (8) – O’s midfielder just can’t stop scoring now, three out of three in League Two and he looks at the top of his game. He also rubbished suggestions he can’t play with Weir - they were both superb.

Harry Cornick (7.5) – A joy to watch the winger on the ball and he always tries to pick out a team-mate when crossing into the box. Like Massey on the other flank, he worked so hard.

Jordan Bowery (7.5) – Pleased to see him find the net just minutes after failing to convert a great opportunity. He makes some intelligent runs and will be good asset to O’s.

Paul McCallum (7.5) – No goal for the ex-West Ham United striker, but he was unlucky not to find the net. He went close on a few occasions and defended well from set pieces too.
