Lisbie nicks late leveller

A feisty affair at Brisbane Road finished 1-1 after 10-man Leyton Orient salvaged a last-gasp equaliser against Sheffield United through Kevin Lisbie.

In the 74th minute Orient defender Charlie Daniels was given a straight red card by referee Oliver Langford after his tackle on Lee Williamson - who had only been on the field for three minutes - left the United player requiring treatment before he was helped off the field and replaced.

Nine minutes later they fell behind when Chris Porter applied the finishing touch after shots by Ched Evans and Kevin McDonald were blocked.

But Orient, fired up by some contentious decisions against them, kept pressing forward and were rewarded when a free-kick by Dean Cox was punched out by keeper Steve Simonsen.

It fell to the feet of Lisbie who drilled his shot into the far corner to stretch his side's unbeaten run to five matches.
