Video: Disgraceful scenes at Swindon as home supporter punches Leyton Orient goalkeeper

Leyton Orient maintained their position at the top of League One with a 3-1 away win at Swindon, but it was a bruising encounter in more ways than one.

Orient goalkeeper Jamie Jones was the victim of an on-pitch assault from a home supporter during the encounter.

The irate fan ran onto the pitch and punch an unsuspecting Jones, who thankfully was okay to continue afterwards. The supporter in question was quickly arrested and Orient manager has called on the club to ban the supporter for life.

“Jamie is OK but it doesn't make it right, it is outrageous. He needs a ban for life and should never go to another football match. He had a long time in the six-yard box before the stewards did anything,” Russell Slade said afterwards.
