After playing 120 minutes, Lundstram was one of the three Leyton Orient players to have their penalty kick successfully converted, as Leyton Orient lose 5-3 to Rotherham United in a penalty shoot-out.[18] After failing to reach promotion as expected,[19] Lundstram made his return to his parent club.[20]
