Swansea next up for Orient in the Cup

The O’s are set for a trip to the high-flying Swans.

LEYTON ORIENT have been handed a tricky FA Cup fourth round draw away to Championship promotion contenders Swansea.

After away ties in the previous three rounds, which culminated in the excellent 1-0 victory at Norwich on Saturday, Russell Slade will prepare his side for a trip to south Wales on the weekend of January 29.

Victory over neighbours Dagenham & Redbridge in a first round replay, was followed by the incredible 8-2 win over Droylsden in their replayed round two clash and after dumping the Canaries out in round three the O’s will take on the Swans.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are currently fourth in the Championship and reached round four of the cup after a 4-0 win over Colchester United.
