Paul Clayton put the non-league side ahead after just four minutes on Sunday but Orient's Dean Cox levelled on 25 minutes and Dave Mooney scored twice before half-time.

Alfreton pulled one back through Ben Tomlinson and hit the woodwork four times in total before Cox's second killed the game off late on.

Orient boss Russell Slade said: "They started the first half fantastically well, the home team put us under a lot of pressure.

"They got themselves a goal, and to be fair they could have got another one too. We were hopeless in the first 20 minutes.

"We got the goal and that put us in a good sort of rhythm, and then we got two more great goals and that probably has settled the tie.

"We came here and showed them a great deal of respect. It could have finished six five and that is what the cup is all about."

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.
