Orient bounced back from two consecutive draws to claim a ninth league win of the season against MK Dons.
Patrick Bamford sent the visitors into the lead before a sublime curling effort from Moses Odubajo and a second half strike from Kevin Lisbie sealed a vital victory at Brisbane Road.
The O`s looked the brighter team in the early stages of the game without creating any scoring opportunities..
MK eventually grew into the game and grabbed their chance through Bamford.
The Chelsea loanee received the ball on the deep into the Orient half and cut his way through towards the penalty area where he curled a low drive past the diving stretch of Jamie Jones.
Russell Slade`s men had to respond and they did three minutes before the break.
Odubajo finshed off a fine move with sweeping curled effort which nestled in the bottom left corner after David Mooney and Lisbie link up play.
Now on top the hosts nearly took the lead with the first half coming to an end. Mooney combined with Dean Cox whose effort was stopped by Ian McLoughlin which then rebounded to the Irishman who saw his effort go wide.
The second period saw both teams come out searching for the pivotal third goal. MK applied good pressure on the O`s defence but Cox was the closest to breaking the deadlock after an intricate free kick.
Half way through the second period the home side got the crucial breakthrough. Superb link up play between strikers Mooney and Lisbie carried Orient into the Dons penalty area where Lisbie applied the finishing touch to send them into the lead.
It was the turn of the visitors to improve their performance if they were to take anything from their trip to east London.
Substitute Izale Mcleod nearly provided the spark but saw his shot brilliantly blocked by Jamie Jones.
The striker was involved again as he hit a thunderous half volley inside the area only to see it cannon off the crossbar.
That proved to be the last real opportunity for the trailing Dons as the O`s saw out the victory to stay top of the league.
