Danny Webb lauded Leyton Orient’s “fantastic” travelling support, after 156 fans cheered the O’s on to a stunning win over second placed Plymouth at Home Park.

The 3-2 comeback victory, inspired by a brace from the in-form Gavin Massey and completed by Sandro Semedo’s stoppage time winner, gives us a massive boost ahead of the upcoming home matches with Notts County and Cheltenham Town.

Gavin Massey is 2.25 on EnergyBet to score his fifth goal in five league matches

Unfortunately, Notts County picked up a point against Exeter City to keep us in the drop zone ahead of Saturday’s Brisbane Road encounter. Kevin Nolan’s side completed a remarkable comeback of their own, scoring two goals in stoppage time to rescue a draw against 10-man Exeter.

The two sides go into the match in 23rd and 21st place, on 29 and 30 points respectively. 22nd placed Cheltenham have a ‘winnable’ match at home against 16th placed Yeovil, while Accrington Stanley in 20th take on play-off hopefuls Colchester United.

If Cheltenham lose, or ‘Stanley’ are beaten by three or more goals, Orient would move out of the bottom two by avoiding defeat against Notts County. However, the confidence gained from Tuesday’s victory should drive us on to a first home victory since Boxing Day.
