National League: Hartlepool United 1 Leyton Orient 0

Leyton Orient suffered their first defeat for over a month as they lost 1-0 on the road at Hartlepool United.

Justin Edinburgh’s team were five games unbeaten, but saw that run sadly end against their League Two rivals from last season.

Orient started brightly, but couldn’t take their chances and the Monkey Hangers took the lead in the 38th minute.

The O’s failed to deal with a free kick into the area and Louis Lang headed past Dean Brill to make it 1-0.

Edinburgh was dealt another blow before the break when George Elokobi needed to be replaced by Dan Happe and he made a second change at the interval.

Lamar Reynolds came on for James Brophy, but it failed to have the desired effect as Orient fell to a single-goal defeat.

Leyton Orient: Brill; Ling, Ekpiteta, Elokobi (Happe 45), Widdowson; McAnuff, Adams, Clay (Mooney 68), Brophy (Reynolds 46); Bonne, Koroma.

Unused substitutes; Grainger, Judd.
