A first-half strike from 19-year-old midfielder Moses Odubajo proved enough for the O's to progress.

"We created a number of chances and I'm disappointed that we didn't get enough bodies in the box to finish off the deliveries because could have won the game quite comfortably," said Robson.

"But we didn't and that's our story at the moment. We'll stay positive, we are getting into the positions to create chances and I'm sure the goals will come.

"They got their goal when their player got behind one of our defenders and we didn't defend the cross, which is our Achilles heel and has been throughout the season, although I think we are getting better at it.

"I'm desperate to give our fans something to cheer about, I thought we'd done it at Southend on Saturday where we played exceptionally well and I thought we did enough to have got some reward. It's difficult to keep lifting the players when things are not going your way but I know what a good group they are. We are just not putting the ball in the back of the net."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
