Morecambe 0-1 Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient scored a fortuitous winner against Morecambe to end the Shrimps' three-game winning streak.

Morecambe had an early chance through Alex Kenyon's header, but Orient took the lead when Jack Payne was hit by a clearance and it sailed into the back of the net.

The O's almost doubled their lead when Bradley Pritchard sent in a cross but it landed on top of the crossbar.

Aaron Wildig and Tom Barkhuizen missed second-half chances for Morecambe.

Leyton Orient manager Ian Hendon told BBC Radio London:

Hendon on Morecombe v Leyton Orient

"They threw everything thing at us and in the end and we got our bit of luck, so I'm delighted with the result.

"When you come away you're always going to come under pressure, especially if you're leading. Alex Cisak did his job and I'm really pleased.

"It's about time we had a bit of luck. We keep creating all these chances and not putting them in. Credit to the players - they dug in and battled and we got our rewards."
