Leyton Orient marked Justin Edinburgh's first home game in charge with a 4-1 win over Sutton United at Brisbane Road.

The O's led early on through Macauley Bonne's penalty, and doubled their advantage after the break thanks to a Matt Harrold header.

It was three when Bonne completed a brace nine minutes from time, but Sutton gave themselves a lifeline thanks to Tommy Wright moments after.

But James Dayton put the gloss on a morale-boosting performance with a fourth to send the O's home happy, with a deflected fourth.

Despite making only one change to the line-up from last week's defeat to Sollihull Moors, it was a chalk-and-cheese start from the O's, who saw Dan Happe's header cleared off the line only four minutes in.

They took the lead within minutes, too, after Dayton was fouled in the box and Bonne stepped up to smash home the resulting penalty.

Dean Brill did excellently to keep them in front by keeping out Ross Lafayette's close-range effort, but the O's would then come within a whisker of scoring again.

Dayton's cross was dropped at the feet of Bonne, but after chipping goalkeeper Jamie Butler, his effort was cleared off the line by Jamie Collins.

Bonne could have scored again before the break, but instead it was Harrold who would put the O's two goals to the good after half-time.

The veteran targetman nodded Jobi McAnuff's free-kick over a stranded Butler, and the hosts were in the driving seat.

Substitute David Mooney struck a post as they pushed for a third, and the rebound was tucked in by Bonne to put the result beyond doubt.

Even Wright's consolation mattered little two minutes later, especially as Dayton popped up with another in the final moments.
