Wednesday looked capable of at least a draw when they held the home side at bay in a goalless first half in front of a crowd of just 6,449 at Brisbane Road.

But their afternoon fell to pieces in a 33-minute spell of Leyton Orient action in the second half.

Gary Teale handled the ball and conceded a penalty, with Ben Chorley finding the back of the net opening the floodgates, in the 51st minute.

Six minutes later Harry Kane smashed the ball and Nicky Weaver saved it. But Kane had another go and fires in a goal from inside the six yard box.

Alex Revell got their third from inside the penalty area and Paul-Jose M'Poku fired in to make it 4-0 in the 84th minute.
