Leyton Orient 3-0 Yeovil Town

Leyton Orient recorded their second 3-0 win in three home games but still stay in the League One relegation zone.

Chris Dagnall and wingers Ryan Hedges and Jobi McAnuff were all on target at Brisbane Road against the bottom club.

The O's led inside two minutes when top scorer Dagnall drilled low into the left-hand corner for the striker's 10th league goal of the season.

Hedges doubled that lead five minutes later before Darius Henderson set up McAnuff for the third on the hour.

Orient, in 21st, trail Coventry City by two points, while Yeovil are now seven points adrift of safety.

Leyton Orient striker Chris Dagnall told BBC London 94.9:

Dagnall on Leyton Orient v Yeovil

"I've got three goals in four now and I'm really enjoying it, I'm really enjoying the way we're playing. It was a really important victory today and I look forward to Tuesday.

"In the first 20-30 minutes we got chance after chance, we put two away and we're a little bit disappointed we didn't put a couple more at half-time but we picked ourselves up in the second half and got the third goal."

On relegation danger: "Coventry won away and that happens so we've got to concentrate on ourselves, keep winning, keep picking up three points and this time next week we'll have a better idea."

"Times have changed [since last year] and we're in a dog fight, we've got to get ourselves out of it and look forward to next season."
