YOUNGSTER Ryan Brunt bagged his second goal in as many games for Leyton Orient on Tuesday night . . . as he continued to impress during his three-month loan spell at Brisbane Road.
The 19-year old, who opened up his account for the O’s with the decisive strike against Brentford on Friday, was again in the thick of the action against Yeovil; playing a key role in their emphatic 4-1 victory.
Brunt headed home the second goal of the evening for Russell Slade’s side shortly before the half hour mark, after Ben Chroley had opened the scoring in just the third minute.
Midfielder Jimmy Smith and former Charlton striker Kevin Lisbie added to Orient’s tally before the end of play, with Sam Foley’s second half goal for the visitors proving to be nothing more than a consolation.
The victory extended the Londoners winning run to three games, and elevates them up into 13th place in the league table ahead of this weekend’s trip to the Alexandra Stadium, Crewe.
Like Brunt, Belgian starlet Florent Cuvelier was also in action in League One, however, he wasn’t able to prevent the Walsall from slipping to a 3-1 defeat against Stevenage Borough.
The midfielder put in another lively display in the heart of midfield, but goals from Greg Tansey, Lucas Atkins and Robin Shroot ensured it would be a disappointing trip back home from Hertfordshire.
Elsewhere, Matthew Lund started for Bristol Rovers as they set off in search of their first win of the campaign against Plymouth at Home Park, but they had to be content with a point despite dominating the majority of the encounter.
The former Crewe youngster impressed on the right hand side of midfield for the Pirates, before being replaced in the 60th minute.
Conor Hourihane had put the hosts ahead during the first half, before defender Tom Parkes headed home the equaliser for Rovers 20 minutes from time.
Michael Tonge meanwhile made his second start for Championship promotion hopefuls Leeds United against Hull City, after joining the Blades on loan until the end of the year last week.
Disappointingly for Tonge and his new team-mates though, they slipped to a 3-2 defeat at Elland Road, with former Potters skipper Abdoulaye Faye scoring for the visitors.
Argentinean striker Luciano Becchio had rifled Leeds into the lead from the penalty spot in the eighth minute, before goals from Ahmed Elmohammedy, Faye and Robert Koren put the visitors firmly in the driving seat.
There was late drama when Andy Gray halved the deficit in stoppage time, but Hull held on to record victory and in the process deny Tonge of his first victory in a Whites shirt.
