Orient went ahead through Romain Vincelot's well-taken header, only for the Rs to level thanks to a low long-range effort from Junior Hoilett.

Burnley conceded a late winner to go down 2-1 against Preston in front of former North End and Manchester United manager David Moyes, who was in the crowd at Deepdale

Preston's equaliser came seven minutes after the break as Alan Browne found the net, and their winner came in the final minute thanks to Josh Brownhill's superb free-kick.

Bafetimbi Gomis scored his first goal for Swansea and Josh Sheehan was also on target as Garry Monk's men secured a 2-0 victory over Exeter at St James Park.

Gomis, who also hit the post later in the game, opened the scoring when he got his head to the end of Neil Taylor's cross.

Stoke City's tour of Germany ended with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Schalke, with new signing Bojan opening his account for Mark Hughes' side following his move from Barcelona.
