The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

LEY­TON Ori­ent put their tu­mul­tuous 2014-15 cam­paign firmly be­hind them, as they de­liv­ered an im­pres­sive per­for­mance against the Football League new­com­ers.

Both of the home side’s strik­ers got on the score­sheet as Jay Simp­son and Paul McCal­lum gave them the three points with two goals in quick suc­ces­sion late on. Bar­net prob­a­bly edged pro­ceed­ings in the open­ing 45 min­utes, with Michael Gash miss­ing their best chance of the half.

How­ever, the home side ral­lied af­ter half time and af­ter dom­i­nat­ing the sec­ond pe­riod they even­tu­ally got their just re­wards late on.

The three points rep­re­sent a solid plat­form for Ori­ent but Bar­net will be far from dis­cour­aged by their first dis­play at this level.
