Leyton Orient and Scunthorpe United couldn’t be separated on Saturday, although the hosts had the better opportunity.

Ollie Palmer failed to hit the target with one in the first half and after the break he didn’t connect when the goal was at his mercy.

Charlie Grainger did make two decent saves for the O’s too, but they would have felt they deserved to progress more than the Iron.

With a trip to Chelsea up for grabs in the next round, both sides will be keen to take their chances during the replay next week at Glanford Park

Sean Clohessy (7) – Vice-captain was again solid, although he didn’t offer as much going forward, but didn’t really need to.

Most Read

Mathieu Baudry (7) – French skipper dealt well with old team mate Darius Henderson, but made one poor error in first half and was nearly punished.

Jean-Yves M’voto (8) – The big man looks an absolute steal. He nullified any threat Scunthorpe thought they might have in the air as he won everything. Top performance.

Frazer Shaw (8.5) – Former West Ham defender continues to get better and better. He was so composed throughout and linked up with Jobi McAnuff well.

Blair Turgott (8) – Good display by the speedy winger, who showed his pace to create great chance for Palmer. He went close himself with a couple of efforts and although he doesn’t always make the right choices, he is a constant threat.

Bradley Pritchard (7) – More improved from the Zimbawean, playing in a position he isn’t too familiar with. Full of energy before he was replaced.

Jack Payne (7) – Steady again from the Peterborough man as he helped the O’s win the midfield battle and got forward more than normal. Missed a decent chance in the second half.

Lloyd James (7.5) – Wonderful pass to Palmer in the first 45 and grew into the match as it went on. Did make a rash decision in injury time, but performed well.

Jobi McAnuff (8) – The Jamaican looked like he had a point to prove and he certainly impressed. He was closing people down, making tackles and his quality was clear to see. Excellent display.

Ollie Palmer (6.5) – Such a frustrating afternoon for the forward, who once again worked his socks off and did his lone role up top brilliantly, but when given the chances to score - he couldn’t take them.

Substitutes:

Scott Kashket, for Pritchard 61. (7.5) – Another encouraging cameo from the young man. He looked lively and went close on a few occasions.

Victor Adeboyejo, for Palmer 86.
