Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-1 Leyton Orient

Mathieu Baudry

Leyton Orient were removed from top spot in League One despite battling back to claim a point at Molineux.

Ethan Ebanks-Landell's powerful finish earned Wolves an early lead after Kevin McDonald played him in - the defender's second goal in as many league starts.

Jake Cassidy and Michael Jacobs both missed chances to extend Wolves' lead.

The O's grew into the game, levelling when defender Mathieu Baudry converted from Moses Odubajo's cross before the game petered out in scrappy fashion.

Brentford's convincing win over MK Dons means that they take over on top from Russell Slade's side, while Wolves, who started the day in second place, drop to third.

Wolves also suffered an injury blow, losing young midfielder Jack Price, who did not return after the break with a knee injury.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wolves scorer Ethan Ebanks-Landell told BBC WM:

"When that carrot's there, you've got to bite it and take it.

"We did not get that sort of opportunity under Mick McCarthy, but the gaffer's got faith in me and so have the boys.

"We're aiming for another 48 points from the second half of the season. But we've got to take our chances.

"I only remember them having two chances, but we created enough to have won the game."
