Leyton Orient 5-1 Gillingham

Leyton Orient kept their slim chances of automatic promotion alive with an impressive win against Gillingham.

David Mooney's angled shot opened the scoring and Dean Cox's volley made it 2-0 inside the opening 10 minutes.

The game was over as a contest when Kevin Lisbie fired in Moses Odubajo's cross and then, a minute later, pounced on a mistake to tee-up Mooney's second.

Chris Dagnall beat three players to add a fifth before Craig Fagan scored the Gills a late, close-range consolation.

The win was Orient's first in six matches and mathematically secures them at least a play-off spot.
