Rovers win to move out of drop zone
Rovers made much of the early running but Marvin Sordell missed the target, while Gareth Edds saw his header saved. But the home side struck in the 27th minute with Ian Thomas-Moore collecting a loose ball following a free-kick and netting from 20 yards. The Merseysiders soon doubled their advantage when on-loan striker Sordell blasted home from the edge of the box when set up by Edds. Orient introduced Jonathan Tehoue and James Scowcroft after the break, and later Loick Pires, and the trio showed a much greater appetite. Substitute Tehoue did pull a goal back with an excellent shot after 86 minutes and it needed a fine save from Luke Daniels to deny Jason Demetriou an equaliser late on.
