Leyton Orient came from behind to record a deserved 2-1 win at League One leaders Exeter, with Ruel Sotiriou firing home a stoppage-time winner.

The home side broke the deadlock in spectacular fashion in the 49th minute when 16-year-old debutant Jake Richards lobbed the ball forwards and Demi Mitchell allowed it to bounce before lashing a stunning 20-yard half volley over the head of Sol Bryan which went in off the underside of the crossbar.

Orient levelled six minutes later, though, as Joe Pigott was allowed to chest down a cross and fire a shot into the bottom corner from 10 yards.

But, Orient won it two minutes into stoppage time when Sotiriou was afforded too much space 25 yards out and his low shot flew past Woods into the bottom corner.

Stevenage and Carlisle played out an entertaining 2-2 draw in the other game in League One.

Jamie Reid gave Stevenage the lead after 15 minutes from close range, while Sean Maguire equalised for Carlisle just five minutes later.

The home side then retook the lead, again thanks to Reid, as he found the top corner from a tight angle with 16 minutes to go.

But the Cumbrians hit back again, as Joe Garner equalised in the 90th minute with a header from Owen Moxon’s corner.
