Leyton Orient boosted their hopes of League One survival with a gritty victory at Oldham.

In a quiet opening first half, Reuben Reid brought the best out of O's keeper Paul Rachubka, who made a fine save.

The breakthrough came with 20 minutes remaining, when David Mooney found the bottom corner.

Despite having Ryan Dickson dismissed for two bookable offences, the second for a foul on Keanu Marsh-Brown, Orient secured their second win in nine games.
