Justin Edinburgh labelled Leyton Orient’s game with Sutton United as “bizarre” as the 10-man O’s came from behind to win, report the East London & West Essex Guardian.

Jonah Ayunga put the hosts ahead in the second half to which Dan Happe soon equalised.

However, substitute James Dayton was then shown a red card despite being carried off an a stretcher before Sutton keeper Ross Worner brought down Macauley Bonne late on, and he converted the penalty.

After the game, Edinburgh said: “I think it’s take another day or two to take all of that in. It was a bizarre game with a lot of incredible incidents and we needed someone with nerves of steel and Macauley produced that go give us the winning goal.

“It probably wasn’t our best performance but at this stage of the season it’s all about the result and we got three valuable points today.”
