Leyton Orient cruised into the second round of the FA Cup on Saturday after thrashing Staines Town 6-1 at Brisbane Road.

Ollie Palmer and Dean Cox were at the double for Ian Hendon’s side to help them see off the Ryman Premier outfit.

It means the O’s will entertain League One opposition in the next round with Scunthorpe United visiting east London.

Late strikes from John Marquis and Sean Clohessy added some gloss to the scoreline as the League Two team showed their class against their non-league opponents

Alex Cisak (6.5) – The Australian international didn’t have much to do, but should have done better with the goal he conceded. A poor punch caused confusion in the Orient box.

Sean Clohessy (8) – Excellent performance from the experienced right-back up against a tricky winger. He got forward to good affect too and scored his first for the club late on.

Mathieu Baudry (7) – Skipper dealt well with Pat Cox, who had found the net eight times in the FA Cup, but was part of defence that panicked for the goal.

Alan Dunne (7) – Solid from the former Millwall man on his return to the team. He will look to improve as his match fitness increases.

Frazer Shaw (8.5) – Excellent display from the young left-back. He set up the first two goals and won free kick for Cox’s stunner. Certainly made his impact felt and looked back to his best.

Blair Turgott (7.5) – Decent enough performance from former West Ham United man, who played his part in Palmer’s second and Clohessy’s effort too,

Jack Payne (7.5) – He did what was required of him and buzzed around in midfield, closing people down and kept the O’s ticking along nicely.

Lloyd James (7) – A couple of poor passes early on, but grew into the match and was key figure towards the latter stages.

Dean Cox (8) – Top drawer from Orient’s talisman, lovely finish for his first and second was pure quality. He was working his socks off too and gave everything.

Jay Simpson (6.5) – Frustrating afternoon for League Two’s top goalscorer as he was thwarted on a number of occasions by Staines number one before he was substituted.

Ollie Palmer (8) – Big forward was back among the goals and took both well despite them being simple finishes. He linked up nicely with Simpson too, which was encouraging.


Freddy Moncur, for Payne 63. (7) – The son of former West Ham favourite John Moncur demonstrated his ability with an impressive cameo. He was excellent on the ball and showed he can put his foot in as well.

Scott Kashket, for Simpson 69. (7) – Lovely pass for Marquis to score and had a couple of chances himself to find the net. Clearly a very talented individual.

John Marquis, for Palmer 76. (7) – Millwall loanee didn’t get much time to have an impact, but scored a lovely goal – his first for the club and will take a lot of confidence from that.
