Leyton Orient promoted to the Football League to end two-year exile

Leyton Orient sealed the National League title after a tense goalless draw at home to Braintree.

The O’s suffered a dramatic fall from grace and tumbled out of League Two in 2017 – but they will return to the Football League following their two-year exile.

The home side enjoyed much of the first-half possession but struggled to fashion opportunities on goal.

Jobi McAnuff came close for the O’s after 37 minutes, but his curling shot was blocked by Kodi Lyons-Foster.
