Leyton Orient 1-3 Swindon Town

Swindon moved up to fourth in League Two following a well-deserved victory over Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road.

Keshi Anderson put the visitors ahead in the 23rd minute. The 24-year-old was fouled and sent his free-kick into the wall but reacted quickest to pounce on the loose ball and curl into the far corner past Dean Brill.

Richie Wellens' men continued to maraud forward and their attacking intent paid dividends again two minutes before the break, with Rob Hunt's audacious side-foot from the corner of the box taking a telling deflection off Orient left-back Joe Widdowson and flying past a surprised Brill.

The game was then over in first-half stoppage time when Lloyd Isgrove provided his sixth assist of the league season.

The former Southampton winger darted through the centre of the pitch before laying off to Jerry Yates, who cut onto his right foot before finishing with aplomb.

Jordan Maguire-Drew curled home brilliantly from 20 yards to give Orient hope with 16 minutes of normal time left but Swindon held on to send their fans home happy.
