A Paddy Madden brace and James Hayter strike ensured the Glovers continued their promotion charge at the expense of Orient, who came into the game on the back of nine wins in their last 10 matches.

Yeovil controlled large periods of the first half and almost took an early lead when Madden's header cannoned off the crossbar.

Orient, missing leading goalscorer Kevin Lisbie through a shoulder injury, continued to live dangerously with Byron Webster heading narrowly wide.

The hosts broke the deadlock four minutes before the break when Hayter raced through on goal, before squaring for Madden to notch his ninth league goal of the campaign.

The Somerset side doubled their advantage after an hour when Gavin Williams's cross was bundled home by the onrushing Hayter.

Madden, on loan from Carlisle United, secured the points after pouncing on a poor Ben Chorley back-pass to slide the ball through the legs of the helpless Jamie Jones.
