REPORT: Bournemouth 1 Leyton Orient 1
Cox leaves it late to earn O’s a draw at Dean Court.
DEAN COX snatched a point for Leyton Orient in second half stoppage time to extend their unbeaten run to eight games.
Michael Symes had given promotion-chasing Bournemouth the lead in the first half, but The Cherries were made to pay for not scoring a second, when Cox volleyed in his sixth goal of the season.
Orient keeper Jamie Jones was tested with long range efforts early on by Warren Feeney and Anton Robinson, but neither could find a way past the in-form stopper.
Terrell Forbes missed the O’s best chance of the first half, heading over Jason Crowe’s excellent right-wing cross.

Six minutes before the break Bournemouth broke the deadlock after a mistake from stand-in centre back Elliot Omozusi gifted Michael Symes a clear run on goal and the forward finished coolly past Jones from 18 yards.
After the break Jonathan Tehoue forced a smart save from Shwan Jalal, but the O’s found chances hard to come by and Bournemouth should have put the game beyond the visitors.

Symes and Danny Ings both missed golden opportunities to grab a second for the hosts and they were made to pay when Cox’s looping volley from the edge of the penalty area sailed over the helpless Jalal, salvaging an unlikely point for the O’s.
