FA Cup: Scunthorpe 3-0 Leyton Orient highlights

League One side Scunthorpe booked an exciting FA Cup trip to Premier League champions Chelsea by beating Leyton Orient in their second-round replay.

After a 0-0 draw in the original game, neither side could break the deadlock until Scunthorpe scored two goals in five second-half minutes.

Orient defender Jean-Yves Mvoto put into his own net before Jack King scrambled in the second.

Hakeeb Adelakun's injury-time tap-in sealed victory for the Iron.

Scunthorpe are 14th in the third tier having won just one of their past five league matches.

But Chelsea have struggled this season in defence of their Premier League crown and have bad memories of the FA Cup from last season, when they were beaten 4-2 by League One Bradford in the fourth round.

However, the Blues have won 17 consecutive third-round ties.

The Iron will travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, 10 January.

Scunthorpe United manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Humberside:

Robins on Scunthorpe v Orient

"I'm delighted we're through. I'm relieved we're through, because it was a pressure game.

"I'm delighted for the chairman because it means the coffers are swelled for me in January.

"It gives us a chance to play against the champions of England, the Premier League champions. They're a top team with a top manager and whatever anyone is saying about them at the moment it's a tough, tough game.

"Fairy stories are written, if you look at last year when Bradford beat them. It only happens once in a while and I saw them play against Walsall this year and they were outstanding. We'll certainly have to have a bit of patience to try to create something against them."
