Thornton: Bagged a brace

Thornton: Bagged a brace

Two goals from Sean Thornton ensured Leyton Orient ended a run of seven games without a win with a 2-0 victory over Walsall.

Orient, who had not scored in their previous three games, were unable to find a breakthrough in the opening 45 minutes.

Their best effort came from a 28th-minute header from striker Scott McGleish, which Walsall's Josh O'Keefe hooked over his own bar for a corner.

Orient broke the deadlock in the 63rd minute when Aaron Doran capitalised on Walsall's defensive uncertainty and crossed for Thornton to slide home.

The hosts added a second nine minutes later when Jonathan Tehoue and McGleish worked the ball in from the right and Thornton scored with a low shot.

Walsall never looked like finding a way back into the game and failed to muster an attempt on goal after the interval.
