FAC: Bradford 1-2 Leyton Orient

BY foxsports • November 29, 2008

Leyton Orient booked their place in the FA Cup third round as a 65th-minute goal from Danny Granville sealed a 2-1 win at Bradford City.

Orient took the lead for the first time after 14 minutes when Jason Demetriou chipped the ball over goalkeeper Rhys Evans from 18 yards.

The Bantams hit back after the half-time interval and deservedly drew level after 58 minutes, Michael Boulding slipping the ball past the advancing Glenn Morris from 12 yards.

But Orient regained their lead shortly after with a looping header as Granville met Dean Morgan's right-wing cross.

Graeme Lee headed wide as Bradford searched for a second equaliser and Evans also pulled off a smart save to deny John Melligan late on.
