Leyton Orient 8 - 2 Droylsden

Tuesday 7 December 2010, The FA Cup, Second Round

Jonathan Tehoue and Scott McGleish hit hat-tricks as Leyton Orient stormed back to end Droylsden's FA Cup dreams.

The Bloods led through goals from Ciaran Kilheeney and Alex Brown as Orient's Terrell Forbes was sent off.

Ben Chorley got one back and, following a red card to Nathaniel Kerr, Tehoue equalised before Chorley was dismissed.

Paul-Jose Mpoku put the hosts ahead in extra time and, after Les Roche was sent off, Tehoue added two goals and McGleish three as Orient ran riot.

An amazing encounter at Brisbane Road ultimately ended in more FA Cup heartbreak for the Blue Square Bet North side, who were thrown out of the competition for fielding an ineligible player after reaching the third round two seasons ago.

They took the lead after seven minutes when Kilheeney prodded home, before Forbes was given his marching orders for a bad tackle on Jody Banim.

Things got worse for the hosts when Brown pounced on rebound to double Droylsden's lead soon after the break, but Orient were given hope 15 minutes from time when Liam Brownhill upended Mpoku and Chorley despatched the resulting penalty.

Droylsden's Kerr saw red for a foul on Alex Revell before Tehoue met Mpoku's cross to level the scores, Chorley seeing red shortly after for a second yellow.

Mpoku's low drive put Orient ahead in the early stages of extra time and Droylsden faded badly when Roche was dismissed for his second booking.

McGleish and Tehoue both scored from 18 yards within two minutes of each other and Tehoue completed his hat-trick from 20 yards out.

Two close-range finishes in the dying moments sealed McGleish's treble and put further gloss on the night for Orient, who now travel to Norwich in the third round.


The beautiful game. :D
