Leyton Orient continued their fine pre-season with a 2-1 win at home to Norwich City XI.

Diallang Jaiyesimi put the young Canaries in front midway through the first half, before Lee Angol volleyed the O's level and Josh Wright won it late on.

Goalkeeper Dean Brill returned to the line-up for the first time in pre-season, with a strong Orient side taking to the pitch just a week before the Football League season begins.

A slow start to the game saw it take 14 minutes for either side to register a serious attempt on goal, but it went the way of the visitors as Jaiyesimi powered through on goal only for his effort to smash off the crossbar.

Not long after though, Jaiyesimi made amends when he received the ball in the box, and his shot had just enough power to beat Brill and go in off the far post.

There was little action at the other end, though, with Jordan Maguire-Drew forcing a mistake from the Norwich defence the closest Orient came to getting on the scoresheet in the first half.

Maguire-Drew was taken off at the break and replaced by James Brophy, and it seemed to give Orient a little more energy.

They looked more threatening going forward and had an excellent chance through Conor Wilkinson when he was found by Angol’s cross, but the summer signing from Dagenham & Redbridge could only place it wide.

The O’s did find an equaliser, though, in the 63rd minute when Sam Ling found space on the right and curled a beautiful cross to the far post with the outside of his boot, and Angol was their to fire a volley past Archie Mair and level proceedings.

The O's then took a late lead through Josh Wright, scoring his first goal since returning to the club by drilling into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

That proved to be the final decisive action in the game, and Orient now have just two more friendlies before the EFL season starts, with young XI's travelling to Canvey Island on Monday and Potters Bar on Tuesday respectively.
