Goals from Dean Cox and Moses Odubajo secured victory for Leyton Orient against relegated Rochdale.

The O's took the lead through Cox, who picked up Kevin Lisbie's downward header and volleyed in from 20 yards.

Odubajo added a second before half-time, cutting inside two defenders before unleashing an unstoppable 25-yard drive.

Reece Gray pulled a goal back for Rochdale late on, beating two defenders and slotting past Jamie Jones.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade tells BBC London 94.9:

"Yes, I was particularly pleased with the young lads, especially Moses [Odubajo] who made his debut today at right back.

"I think his could be the goal of the season for us, it was fantastic.

"It was nice to get a win in front of the home fans, they have had to suffer too many defeats and too many below par performances.

"But I do think we could have won the game more easily but it's still nice to get the win."
