FC Halifax Town 1-2 Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient secured a vital victory at fellow National League strugglers FC Halifax Town.

Orient opened the scoring when Craig Clay found Dan Holman free on the edge of the area before the forward played a through ball for Macauley Bonne to find the net from just inside the area.

Halifax levelled 14 minutes later through Tom Denton after a driven cross from Josh MacDonald found the winger at the far post to tap in from close range.

However, Josh Koroma scored the winner for the visitors six minutes before the break when he shrugged off his defender and drilled into the bottom corner past Sam Johnson, securing their first win in five league matches.
