Football - Slade left to concentrate on league

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade was not left too dejected by his side's FA Cup exit at Yeovil, with league matters taking priority.

The O's, currently in third place in League One, were comprehensively beaten 4-0 in Somerset as James Hayter scored either side of Joel Grant's goal before substitute Kieffer Moore completed the rout late on.

Slade said: "It was an unfortunate mistake from Jake in goal for the first and we rallied around at half-time and it was only 1-0 but the second was a bit of a killer really.

"The last one you can ignore because he is several yards offside but whether it is 3-0 or 4-0 they deserved to go through on the day.

"It is a difficult time for us because we have injuries and we are trying to bring one or two players in and still get results, so put this in a box and put it to one side.

"We're out of the FA Cup now so we can concentrate on the league and a very big game which we have on Tuesday."
