Goalkeeper Mike Green kept Orient out until the 87th minute when David Mooney nodded home before Dean Cox pounced to make it two.

Orient now face Alfreton in the second round, and Slade said: "It was all about getting through in the FA Cup and we know how difficult it can be.

"In the end, we got the goals. We wanted them earlier, but to be fair their goalkeeper has pulled off some fantastic saves.

"Credit to Gloucester because they gave every last ounce, but we wore them down in the end, got on top and eventually got the goals.

"The first 10 minutes were Gloucester's best 10 minutes and we didn't cope with that very well but we got a grip in the middle of the park in the second half."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
