Leyton Orient 0-1 Gillingham

League Two Gillingham pulled off a surprise win at League One Leyton Orient to progress to round three of the FA Cup.

After a drab first half Curtis Weston gave the Gills the lead when he fired in from 10 yards after Charlie Lee's long throw-in was poorly defended.

Danny Kedwell could have doubled the lead after home keeper Ben Alnwick's sliced clearance.

Lee Cook almost salvaged a replay but smashed against the crossbar.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade told BBC London 94.9:

We didn't deserve to go through - Slade

"I thought it was a game of two halfs - in the first half we didn't play with any energy, or with conviction.

"The second half we were taking the game to them.

"Overall we didn't deserve to go through, probably a draw at best."

Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent:

We were exceptional - Hessenthaler

"I thought we were absolutely exceptional today, pleased with the performance from start to finish.

"I can't ask for any more from them. We did it with a lot of urgency, Curtis has gambled and tucked it away nicely.

"The better team won the game. We earned a bit of luck at the end because of the performance today.
