Result: Leyton Orient produce 3-1 comeback win over Peterborough United

Leyton Orient produce a comeback to beat Peterborough United 3-1 in League One this afternoon.

Leyton Orient produced a 3-1 comeback win over home side Peterborough United in League One this afternoon, thanks to a brace from David Mooney and a goal from Dean Cox.

The hosts gave the league leaders an early test when Tyrone Barnett found space before unleashing a shot with his right foot, which was saved by the Orient keeper.

In response, Orient took the game to their opponents, with both Lloyd James and Kevin Lisbie having shots from outside of the area blocked by the United defence.

United took the lead in the 26th minute when Tommy Rowe produced the final touch to flick in Grant McCann's cross with his left foot.

Scott Cuthbert attempted to hit back for Orient in the 30th minute, but his headed effort was saved with ease.

However, just before the break Mooney produced a well-timed strike from the centre of the box to bring things level going into the break.

Orient produced some good attacking football after the break and took the lead when Cox crashed home a right-footed effort into the top left corner.

Having grabbed his side's equaliser, Mooney then popped up in the 58th minute to put his side further in front as he finished after being played in by previous goalscorer Cox.
