After three consecutive away draws, the O’s will be at home in the last eight of the competition

Leyton Orient will host Maidstone United or Gateshead at Brisbane Road in the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy.

The draw was made this afternoon and it pits Justin Edinburgh’s men against another one of their National League rivals.

On Saturday the O’s progressed to the last-eight with a thrilling 4-3 win at high-flying Dover Athletic.

Goals from George Elokobi, Macauley Bonne and Matt Harrold put Orient three up, but the Whites fought back to level with eight minutes to go.

Thankfully for the O’s David Mooney popped up with a stoppage time winner to ensure they make the quarter-finals where they will be at home to one of Maidstone or Gateshead.

Orient were due to host Torquay United on February 24, but that league fixture will now be rearranged for a later date.

Maidstone were held to a 2-2 draw by Gateshead on Saturday with the two clubs set to do battle again tomorrow night in a replay.
