Chester 0-1 Leyton Orient

James Brophy's goal was the difference as Leyton Orient eased their relegation worries with a 1-0 win away to fellow strugglers Chester.

Brophy headed home in the 68th minute of a tight match, moving Orient eight points clear of the drop zone.

Macauley Bonne had a fine chance to double the lead with 10 minutes left but blazed his shot over from close range.

Chances were few and far between for Chester, who are now six points adrift of safety.
