Wolverhampton Wanderers have moved to the top of League One at the expense of Leyton Orient after a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Notts County at Meadow Lane.
Kenny Jackett's men were made to work hard for their points, though, as the bottom-placed Magpies held out for 76 minutes, until Ethan Ebanks-Landell bagged his first senior goal and usurped Russell Slade's Orient in the process.
Joe Garner proved to be the difference between the two teams, expertly volleying past goalkeeper Jamie Jones in the 33rd minute, as the O's were devoid of the free-scoring form that has seen them bag at least one goal in each of their previous 15 league fixtures this season.
Marcello Trotta opened the scoring two minutes from half time, executing a Luis Suarez-type header past goalkeeper Alan Martin, before Adam Forshaw, George Saville and a Clayton Donaldson brace piled the misery on the Railwaymen, who remain in the relegation zone.
Chris Robertson and Jennison Myrie-Williams fired the Valiants to a 2-0 half-time lead, before Jordan Hugill extinguished any hopes of a comeback after Liam McAlinden had halved the deficit for the visitors.
