The O`s made it three league victories in a row as they won at Broadhall Way on Saturday against Stevenage.

Orient named an unchanged line-up after beating Shrewsbury in the previous weekend, whilst the Boro called upon former O Jimmy Smith in their starting eleven.

The hosts created the first moment of the game with Oumare Tounkara heading over from a Dani Lopez cross.

Despite neither side creating any real clear cut chances early in the game, Stevenage were looking slightly the better team with their physical playing style.

With 27 minutes gone that momentum was to change critically as the O`s took the lead.

Moses Odubajo terrific run and cross was met by Kevin Lisbie at the near post who guided the ball past Chris Day.

The O`s were starting to fashion the better attacking opportunities. Orient felt aggrieved when they were not given the chance to make it two with a penalty claim.

Kevin Lisbie appeared to be unfairly challenged for the ball by former team mate Smith in the area but referee Brendan Malone turned down the visitors protests.

Lisbie was once again involved as the O`s had another opportunity before the break when his header from a Lloyd James cross went narrowly wide.

Into the second half and once again Orient looked to threaten with Dean Cox going close with a low driven effort.

On 65 minutes the O's were once again screaming for a penalty as Lisbie was hacked down by Stevenage keeper Day. It looked like there had been clear contact but referee Malone once again ignored the appeals of the away side.

That decision fired up the contest with both sides desperate to get the next goal. Boro`s Lopez went close with a 30 yard dipping effort.

The O`s had a major scare going into the final 20 minutes.

From a Stevenage corner, the visitors had to desperately scramble the ball away with Lisbie`s attempted clearance bouncing off the crossbar and away from goal where Romain Vincelot eventually cleared.

The hosts were piling on the pressure but couldn't create any more glaring moments. Substitute Greg Tansey blasted over inside the O`s box as the final chance for Stevenage came and went, with the visitors holding on to a hard earned three points.
