Yeovil fought back from two goals down with eight minutes remaining to draw with Leyton Orient and ensure their League One status.

Kevin Lisbie nodded in the opener midway through the first half, and added a second from close range after the break to set Orient on their way.

But the Glovers hit back when Andrew Williams reacted quickest after a goalmouth scramble.

And Jonathan Obika stabbed home from close range to level in added time.

Orient are currently 19th, four points above Wycombe with two games to play.

Yeovil are safe for another season, lying in 16th place, eight points clear of the danger zone.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade told BBC London 94.9:

"We have not dealt with two long balls from a very direct Yeovil side.

"I thought it was a good professional performance up until we conceded, that's our problem; we can't keep the balls out the net.

"It wasn't good enough at the crucial time in the game. We don't do anything easy here, we just need to get a result next week.

"We need to find a few more points to get us out of this situation."

Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"We had to get into them a little bit at half-time because I just wanted the lads to finish the season well.

"We came off the back of last week's poor performance and credit to them, they showed great character.

"We looked dangerous from our set-plays and in the end that's got us the two goals.

"The boys are buzzing that we got it back and in the end it was a hard-fought draw that's kept us in this division."
