Post-match comments

Palace boss Steve Bruce praised the O's perfomance. He said: "All credit to Orient I thought they were terrific for a third division side.

"They played the game the right way, passed the ball and contributed to a fantastic cup tie.

"But we started the second half much better and created chance after chance and the longer the game went on the more comfortable we became."
