Johnstone’s Paint Trophy draw revealed.

Leyton Orient have been drawn away to Stevenage in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy southern section quarter-final this morning.

Last season’s beaten area finalists progressed to this stage after defeating Coventry City at Brisbane Road on Tuesday night on penalties. The encounter had finished goalless after normal time before Lloyd James netted the decisive spot kick after goalkeeper Jamie Jones saved Franck Moussa’s penalty and Jon Fleck missed the target.

And they’ll be hoping to make it through to the last four of the southern section for the second year in succession with victory over Graham Westley’s side.

The tie will be played on week beginning November 11.
