Millwall first threatened with striker Steve Morison's header drifting wide.

Orient broke the deadlock when substitute Townsend gathered a Millwall clearance and found the bottom corner of the visitors' net from distance, two minutes of appearing off the bench.

The nearest Millwall came to rescuing a point was when Orient goalkeeper Jamie Jones plunged at the feet of striker Neil Harris.
