FC Halifax Town 1-1 Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient scored a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser at Halifax to maintain their unbeaten start to the National League season.

Halifax forward Matty Kosylo tested visiting goalkeeper Dean Brill early on before Orient grew into the match with Marvin Ekpiteta seeing his strike saved by Sam Johnson.

Macauley Bonne spurned several good openings in the first half, and he almost created the opening goal 10 minutes after the restart when his cross found Josh Koroma, whose effort came off the far post.

The Shaymen capitalised on the away side's profligacy when Kosylo was felled inside the area and Dayle Southwell slotted home the spot-kick to edge the hosts in front.

But James Alabi finished from close range in the first minute of added time to earn the visitors a valuable point.
