Leyton Orient fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to AFC Wimbledon in a behind-closed-doors friendly at their training ground this afternoon.

New signing Jordan Maguire-Drew got on the scoresheet but the Dons hit back with two goals in the second half.

It only took Maguire-Drew 11 minutes to mark his first start in O’s colours with a goal, having made his competitive debut as a substitute in the weekend loss to Salford City. Alex Lawless burst out from midfield and crossed for James Alabi, who nodded down Maguire-Drew to slam home his first goal.

Alabi almost provided another assist but his cross was missed by Matt Harrold and the former Stoke City man had a chance of his own after being played in by George Elokobi, but he was judged to be offside.

The hosts went into the break with the lead but it lasted just three minutes of the second period as AFC Wimbledon broke down the left and converted.

The O’s almost responded when Alabi cracked one against the post and Maguire-Drew’s follow-up was cleared off the line but the game was won in the 72nd minute as Sam Sargeant’s save was nodded into the top corner.

The hosts had a late chance when Lawless played in Ruel Sotiriou, but his run was well marked and the visitors saw out the final few minutes to secure the win.
