Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade believes his side played some fantastic football during their 4-2 FA Cup win at Alfreton.

The O's won their sixth consecutive match after braces from Dean Cox and David Mooney to book a third round trip to Hull City. But it was far from easy as the Conference Premier side took an early lead and pushed Orient all the way.

Slade said: "It was a great cup tie. We didn't start well and that didn't please me obviously. They got an early goal which set us back.

"But I felt once we got the first goal we played some fantastic football and we got three really good goals which put us in the driving seat really.

"Fair play to Alfreton. They came at us again and got a goal not long after half-time. They put us under a little bit of pressure and hit the woodwork three or four times. But we had opportunities as well to get that fourth goal before we actually did. In effect that goal wrapped it up when it came."
