Crewe Match Report

Chris Dagnall had a debut to remember after his two goals helped Orient grab a 2-1 win at struggling Crewe.

Orient made only one change to the side that beat Carlisle last week, bringing Jamie Ness in to the starting line up in place of the injured Marvin Bartley.

Neither side managed to create many chances in what was a close fought first half, but Orient were denied a penalty just before half time when Moses Odubajo appeared to be shoved over by Matt Tootle after Dean Cox set the winger free down the right.

Russell Slade then handed Chris Dagnall his debut, bringing the striker on at half time for Robbie Simpson.

Orient started the first half strongly but it was the hosts who scored the opening goal on the 54th minute.

Chuks Aneke was allowed enough time to control the ball on the edge of the are before forcing Eldin Jakupovic into an impressive save, which the keeper could only parry in to the path of Byron Moore, who gratefully tapped home despite Orient's claims for offside.

Aneke then came close to doubling the hosts lead, before Chris Dagnall introduced himself to the travelling O's fans.

Orient's newest addition ran on to Dean Cox's long ball forward before firing the ball in to the opposite bottom corner to level the scores on 60 minutes.

Dagnall was not finished there as he doubled his tally seven minutes later, volleying Mathieu Baudry's knock down past Crewe goalkeeper Ben Garratt from six yards out.

Crewe went in search of an equaliser, bringing on substitute Uche Ikpeazu who provided a threat with his physical presence but Orient held on to the lead and returned to the top of League One after Brentford drew 1-1 at Walsall.
