Leyton Orient’s League 2 season continued with a win against Grimsby at Blundell Park on Saturday.

Second half goals were enough to give Orient the points at Grimsby with a two-one win secured by the O’s.

After a goalless first half Orient took the lead when Kelly made the most of a mistake from Grimsby ‘keeper McKeown to go ahead just ahead of the hour.

With the match approaching the final 10-minutes against a former side Palmer sealed the point for Orient with an injury-time goal back from Grimsby’s Vose not enough to deny the O’s all three-points.

Here’s a round up of the League 2 action from the other matches played.

Luton and Colchester were the early leaders in League 2 heading into the weekend but both suffered defeats when travelling to Stevenage and Portsmouth, respectively.

The Hatters were beaten two-one at Broadhall Way with the U’s beaten at Fratton Park two-nil as Pompey collected a first three-points of the new season.

Leyton Orient added a two-one win at Grimsby to the midweek win with Plymouth’s (two-nil) recovery from a shaky start continuing with a win over Mansfield at Home Park.

Having not started the season too well Notts County got the points at Victoria Park with a two-one win at Hartlepool.

Another side happy once again will be Morecambe, who had secured a win at the Globe Arena against Pompey prior to this, this time winning at Huish Park when they beat Yeovil.
