Relegation-threatened Bristol City scored twice in the first 11 minutes as former leaders Leyton Orient slumped to a third successive defeat.

The visitors took the lead when Sam Baldock beat O's goalkeeper Shwan Jalal at his near post after three minutes.

Eight minutes later Tyrone Barnett was left unmarked to head powerfully home.

Kevin Lisbie pulled a goal back shortly before half-time, but Jamal was again at fault when defender Aden Flint headed in City's third.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade told BBC London 94.9:

"They played well in the first half hour but we were very poor.

"We were excellent in the second half but unfortunately we conceded a goal with 15 minutes to go which probably clinched it for them, even though we kept trying to rally.

"We were unfortunate not to get back in the game at 2-1 as it was one-way traffic.

"The goals we conceded were not characteristic of us. They were poor goals and not goals you want to be conceding if you want to be in the shout for a spot in the Championship."

Bristol City manager Steve Cotterill told BBC Radio Bristol:

"We came out the traps tonight and did really well.

"I'm so pleased. This has been a long, hard slog, these six games in 17 or 18 days.

"We've been on the road, the bus, staying in hotels and it's been a tough few weeks.

"Thankfully tonight we've got our rewards. Now we have to look forward to what will be our biggest game of the season [against Tranmere]."
