Leyton Orient 1-1 Yeovil Town

Jobi McAnuff rescued a point for Leyton Orient with a stunning strike in a draw with Yeovil at Brisbane Road.

A dire first half lacked quality but the breakthrough came in added time when a poor header by Jean-Yves Mvoto allowed Francois Zoko to convert from close range.

McAnuff came off the bench in the 55th minute and immediately impressed.

In the 74th minute he unleashed an unstoppable drive from 30 yards that flew into the net.

Leyton Orient assistant manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio London:

Hessenthaler on Orient v Yeovil

"There was no life in us, we were lethargic, it just wasn't acceptable.

"It was certainly a shock to me as a coach because I've not seen that. To be fair, over the season we've always put the effort in, we can't question their effort.

"If you work your socks off and perform as a group of players, then you've got a chance of winning the game. In the first half we didn't do that."
