Leyton Orient 1 Hull City 2 (after extra time)

There will be no repeat of Leyton Orient’s FA Cup heroics of 2011, after their brave adventure ended in the third round replay thanks to a goal late into extra time from Tom Cairney.

The O’s reached the fifth round of the competition two years ago, landing a plum tie with Arsenal after victories over Norwich City and Swansea City.

But they succumbed to Championship opposition this time around to miss out on a fourth round home tie against Barnsley.

Nick Proschwitz, whose late goal at the KC Stadium 10 days ago set up this replay, volleyed Hull in front shortly before half-time.

The O’s levelled late in the second half through Dean Cox, but, just as the match seemed destined to go to penalties, Cairney’s late strike saw the Tigers advance.

O’s manager Russell Slade made two changes to the side that drew 1-1 with Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, as cup-tied striker Charlie MacDonald was replaced by midfielder Martin Rowlands, while Ben Chorley came in for Scott Cuthbert at the heart of defence.

The changes in personnel also saw Orient adopt an unfamiliar 4-3-3 system, yet they started the brighter of the two sides, controlling the opening 10 minutes and went close through right-back Moses Odubajo and lone striker David Mooney.

Hull had their freezing cold fans out of their seats on 12 minutes when Jay Simpson sped through the middle and rounded goalkeeper Jamie Jones, but Odubajo – being watched by Millwall manager Kenny Jackett – was back to cover and snuffed out the danger.

Yet it was the home fans who thought they had the first goal to cheer on 21 minutes, when Mooney fired in the rebound after Cox’s deflected shot had come back off the post – but a late offside flag wiped away the east Londoners’ smiles and an 11th goal of the season for the Irishman.

On 26 minutes Jimmy Smith timed a late run into the box perfectly to meet Gary Sawyer’s cross, but the midfielder’s bullet header fizzed over the crossbar.

Cairney and Proschwitz shot harmlessly over at the other end for the Championship promotion pushers, while Simpson gave Jones a simple save to make from a weak effort.

On 41 minutes Proschwitz fired Hull in front with a spectacular volley. Liam Rosenior fed the forward with a low pass and after flicking the ball up, the German fired in on the turn from the edge of the box.

The second half took an age to get going and Slade introduced striker Michael Symes from the bench to give Mooney some much-needed support in the Orient frontline.

However, the visitors looked the most likely to score and got a sniff at goal on 65 minutes but, from a difficult angle, Corry Evans shot wide of the near post.

Simpson had a chance to seal the tie soon afterwards as he stormed through the middle and away from a challenge by half-time substitute Cuthbert, but the former Arsenal trainee saw his low shot brilliantly palmed away by Jones.

On 71 minutes the O’s had a goal chalked out for offside for the second time in the match. Odubajo’s fierce low drive across goal was parried by Hull keeper Eldin Jakupovic into the path of Lee Cook, who was left with a simple tap-in, but the home team’s cheers were short-lived – much to the annoyance of Slade after replays showed Cook to be clearly onside.

But on 87 minutes, just as the tie seemed to have slipped away from Orient’s grip, a mis-hit cross from Cox sailed over keeper Jakupovic’s head and into the top corner, sending the tie into extra time.

Proschwitz had the first sight at goal five minutes into the first period, but his tame shot from the edge of the box was easily gathered by Jones.

A half-volley from Mooney was well held by Jakupovic, while at the other end Seyi Olofinjana’s low drive was blocked by the increasingly busy Jones.

In the second period Symes headed narrowly over the top after he was picked out at the far post by Odubajo’s cross.

With seven minutes remaining – and with the game becoming increasingly stretched – Cairney was put through on goal by Olofinjana, but Cuthbert made a fabulous last ditch tackle to thwart the Tigers’ midfielder.

With just three minutes of additional time remaining and the match seemingly set for a shoot-out Cairney hit the winner from 25 yards when his low shot crept away from the finger-tips of Jones to break Orient hearts.

Leyton Orient: Jones, Odubajo, Chorley, Baudry (Cuthbert 46), Sawyer, James, Rowlands, Smith (Symes 59), Cox, Cook (McSweeney 79), Mooney. Subs: Allsop, Lobjoit, Lee.
