Leyton Orient have been dumped out of the FA Cup after suffering a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Isthmian League North Division side Maldon & Tiptree.

Danny Parish opened the scoring just before half-time, sparking wild celebrations, and Jorome Slew doubled their lead in the 65th minute.

Substitute James Dayton halved the deficit for Orient, who played against 10 men for the final six minutes following Parish's dismissal, but the eighth tier club held on to secure their place in the second round.

O's boss Carl Fletcher started with Sam Sargeant in goal, while Sam Ling returned from injury. Jordan Maguire-Drew and Louis Dennis were also brought into the starting XI following their performances against Brighton Under-21s in midweek.

The hosts started positively, with Josh Wright firing an early opportunity over while Jammers keeper Ben McNamara made a comfortable save from Maguire-Drew.

Sargeant was extended by a fine effort by Parish, but the O's continued to have opportunities as Matt Harrold headed over before Wright shot straight at McNamara following a patient build-up.

The first half looked increasingly set to end goalless, but two minutes before the interval Parish stunned the home side by putting Maldon in front when he cut inside and finished low past Sargeant.

An offside Dan Happe hit the post, while Slew also saw a goal chalked off by the assistant's flag 10 minutes after the restart.

But Slew was not to be denied 10 minutes later when he ended a run at the O's defence with a fine curling finish to leave the home side staring down the barrel.

The two-goal advantage was not to last for long though, as second-half substitute Dayton clipped the ball over the onrushing McNamara after Harrold had headed the ball down.

The O's piled on the pressure and after Wright had been denied by a fine stop by McNamara, they were also handed a man advantage for the closing stages when Parish was sent off for a second yellow card.

However, the visitors managed to hold out, surving a goal-mouth scramble in stoppage time when they somehow cleared off their line after the ball had squirmed through McNamara's grasp.

Leyton Orient: Sargeant, Ling (Alabi 73), Coulson, Happe, Widdowson, Clay, Wright, Maguire-Drew, Dennis (Dayton 58, Gorman 77), Brophy, Harrold. Subs not used: Brill, Ekpiteta, Marsh, Ogie.
