The O's are almost over the line!
Left back Liam Donnelly gets two bookings in quick succession, first by arguing with the referee, and then by squaring up and intimating the referee after the first booking.
Hartlepool are down to 10 men.
90": Pollock saves Orient from conceding with a fantastic last ditch clearance off the line.
90": It's nail biting stuff here at The Matchroom Stadium. Can the O's hold on?

Hartlepool make their last change as captain Nicky Featherstone is replaced by Louis Rooney.
77": With nearly 15 minutes remaining Orient up their game and with the introduction of the two substitutes, has really lifted the team.
Orient make their second change as Adeboyejo is replaced by Josh Koroma.
The visitors make their second change as Amond is replaced by Devante Rodney.
Orient make their first change as Paul McCallum replaces Steven Alzate.
71": Semedo's drilled effort fails to trouble Fryer as the O's look to extend their lead.
69": A fantastic cross by Thomas is just out of the reach of both Amond and Oates and the opportunity to get the game back on level terms goes begging.
Attendance for today is 5,411 with 351 travelling Hartlepool fans.
61": Big shouts for handball from the visitors accusing Pollock of handling the ball in the area are denied by referee Dean Whitestone.

54": Alessandra's whipped cross evades everybody in the O's box as the away side have started this second 45 minutes as the better side.
46": Woods almost makes an instant impact as his cross towards Amond is well cleared by Pollock.
Half-time: Leyton Orient 2-1 Hartlepool United
42": The two number 26's Adeboyejo and Harrison clash after the latter put in a strong challenge on the striker, but the game resumes.
37": The crowd are producing a brilliant atmosphere here in E10, as Kelly can't quite latch onto Abrahams through ball.
Young Tristan Abrahams produces an exceptional finish from 12 yards out that hits the roof of the net and leaves Fryer with no chance of saving.
GOAL ORIENTTTTTTTTT COME ON YOU O'SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
28": Alzate's shot is well blocked as Odeboyejo is causing the Hartlepool defence a lot of problems with his runs in behind, and the likes of Scott Harrison and Brad Walker simply do not know how to deal with the lively forward.
22": Hartlepool waste a glorious chance to get back in front, with Lewis Alessandra's tame effort from six yards out failing to trouble Sam Sargeant, before Adeboyejo drags his shot wide from 12 yards out.
The O's are now on top, with shouts for a penalty denied by referee Dean Whitestone waved away after Kelly was brought down in the penalty area before Sandro Semedo's shot from range went just wide of the right hand post.
15": The hosts are now enjoying most of the possession as the home faithful are letting their feelings known about current events at the club.
10": Before the goal by Oates, the likes of Steven Alzate, Henry Ochieng and Michael Clark had some good touches of the ball and effective attacking play.
The ball breaks loose in the Orient box and striker Ryan Oates finishes calmly to put the visitors 1-0 up against the run of play.
4": Kelly claims the first shot of the game, but the midfielder's deflected effort is well handled by Joe Fryer.
3": No goal scoring opportunities created as yet, but the visitors have had most of the possession, still 0-0.
Captain Liam Kelly gets the game underway.
