Martin Rowlands earned Leyton Orient a point as Crewe Alexandra were forced to settle for a fourth consecutive draw.

Matt Tootle got Crewe off to the ideal start, driving a Brendan Daniels cross into the top corner after 64 seconds.

Rowlands drew the Londoners level when he blasted a right-footed shot into the bottom corner on 19 minutes.

AJ Leitch-Smith hit a post for Crewe but neither side could find a winner and the O's had Anthony Griffith sent off in injury time for a late lunge.
