Valiant Moors defeated on the road

10-man Solihull Moors fell to defeat at unbeaten Leyton Orient as a late opener in first-half stoppage time set the tone at the Breyer Group Stadium.

Charlie Lee gave Orient the lead, before Jamie Reckord received his second red card of the season as Macauley Bonne and Matt Harrold made the points safe late on for Justin Edinburgh's team.

Tim Flowers made two changes to the team that started in Saturday’s 2-1 victory at Barrow, with Luke Maxwell and Corey O’Keeffe coming into the starting line up in place of Jamey Osborne and Jermaine Hylton.

The first chance fell to the hosts as a neat one-two saw Myles Judd get in behind on the right-hand side, before he crossed for Bonne who headed over the bar.

A fast-paced Moors counter attack then gave the first opening for Flowers’ men as Maxwell shrugged off his marker and played in Danny Wright – the striker took aim from a tight angle which Dean Brill was equal to, pushing the ball away to safety.

Orient went straight back up the other end and launched a long throw into the box which was met by an attacking head, fortunately falling just wide of the far post.

The chances came thick and fast as Moors had two glorious opportunities in the same phase of play. First O’Keeffe saw a shot saved, while Kyle Storer’s follow-up was also expertly saved by Brill who got down low.

The home side then had a fine chance of their own as Charlie Lee narrowly headed wide James Drayton’s in swinging corner.

Moors had a claim for a penalty as Wright worked his way past two, before going to ground in the area – referee Josh Smith waved away the claims.

With 22 minutes played, Solihull then had another massive chance to take the lead. Adi Yussuf broke clear after latching onto O’Keeffe’s flick on, before rounding Brill and pulling the ball just wide of the mark as it clipped the post on its way out – the striker just forced himself too wide, narrowing the angle.

Dayton was allowed too much space as he drove into a shooting position, dragging it wide of the right post before the game became broken up with a number of niggly fouls.

An additional three minutes were indicated at the end of the half and with the game now deep into the fifth minute of that, Leyton Orient took the lead. With virtually the last kick of the half, Lee headed in from a corner to send the hosts into half time with the lead, much to the dismay of Moors.

Half-time: Leyton Orient 1-0 Solihull Moors

The second half couldn’t have started any worse for the Moors as Reckord was shown his marching orders following two yellow cards in the space of three minute. Both challenges were late and mistimed, as Moors were forced to play the final half an hour plus with 10-men.

Orient had their tails up following the dismissal of the Moors left back, but Flowers’ men still managed to carve openings. Skipper Storer found some space and had time to pick a spot, but he snatched at his effort and dragged it well wide.

The Moors number four then forced an outstanding save out of Brill as some excellent work from Wright allowed him to tee up Storer, who hit a fierce drive that Brill somehow kept out.

The game began to open up as it entered the final 20 minutes and Orient could’ve doubled their lead but for a Ryan Boot save. Judd drifted a ball to the back post where Bonne was waiting, but the Moors ‘keeper pushed his header round the near post.

Despite being a man light, Moors continued to push for an equaliser but, just as they built up steam, Orient doubled their lead.

With six minutes remaining, Moors were caught on the break as Josh Koroma broke down the right before laying it on a plate for Bonne who made no mistake from a couple of yards out.

And the score line flattered the hosts as they added a third in the 90th minute. Bonne forced a low save out of Boot, but substitute Matt Harold was there to finish off the rebound.
