Slade joy as Orient break mould
Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade was a happy man after his battling League One side enjoyed a stunning 4-3 penalty shoot-out triumph at Charlton.
Charlton led through Scott Wagstaff's first-half opener, but Orient were back on terms just before the break thanks to Mathieu Baudry's header. Former Charlton striker David Mooney missed an early second-half penalty and the game went into extra-time and then the shoot-out. Johnnie Jackson and Lawrie Wilson missed the first two for Charlton and although Ben Chorley also failed to convert one of Orient's spot-kicks, the visitors went through thanks to Ryan Brunt's decisive strike. Slade said: "I'm really proud to be honest, the attitude was excellent. It is not an easy place to come, Charlton, and to go a goal down makes it even more difficult. "I thought we were a bit unfortunate to go a goal down to be honest. We should have been trying to stick one in the other end and they've broken and it has taken a wicked deflection off Gary Sawyer and gone in the net. "But heads didn't drop and I'm really proud that we stayed in the game and kept going, missed a penalty, but in the end we sneaked through on penalties. On reflection I think it would have been a bit disappointing if we had not got something out of it."
