A Scott Wagstaff goal sent league leaders Charlton on their way to a comfortable victory over Leyton Orient.

Wagstaff's goal came early on when a quickly taken free-kick allowed Rhoys Wiggins to surge into the box and set up the striker who tapped home.

Dany N'Guessan extended the hosts advantage when he powered home a header from Lee Cook's pinpoint delivery.

Kevin Lisbie had a great opportunity to score for the visitors but he sent his free header wide of the post.

Charlton could have had more had it not been for Orient keeper Paul Rachubka, as he pulled off a fine double save from Bradley-Wright-Phillips and Chris Solly.

The result means Charlton have moved six points clear of second placed Sheffield United, whilst Orient lie three places above the relegation zone.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Charlton manager Chris Powell told BBC London 94.9:

"It was a fantastic cross by Lee Cook and a wonderful header by Dany N'Guessan.

"I asked for a quick start and we got it, it was quick thinking by Stevens and finished by Scott Wagstaff.

"It was good day all round; a clean sheet, a home win and I think we deserved it over the 90 minutes.

"It's about being brave now, the pressure is on with regards to getting points but ultimately its about what we do."

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade told BBC Radio London 94.9:

"I was disappointed with the first 10 minutes; we didn't start with the intensity I wanted."

"It's quite alarming how many injuries we're picking up in these games, it's really frustrating."

"I thought we had a lot of possession without hurting them. We were not switched on, we have to learn from today's games and improve."
