Norwich   0 - 1   Leyton Orient

Orient celebrate their winner at Carrow Road
Orient celebrate Jimmy Smith's winner at Carrow Road

Jimmy Smith's first-half header gave League One strugglers Leyton Orient a shock FA Cup third-round win over Championship high-flyers Norwich.

Smith had already gone close with an 18-yard volley before heading home Dean Cox's cross following a short corner.

Norwich came back strongly, but Aaron Wilbraham, David Fox and Leon Barnett all wasted decent openings.

The home side dominated after the break but could not find an equaliser despite creating a succession of openings.

Norwich had been boosted by manager Paul Lambert's decision to reject an approach by Burnley on the eve of this game, but they could not progress in the Cup despite their fine form in the league.

And Orient, who came within a minute of being knocked out by non-league Droyslden in the previous round, held out to book their place in round four.

Former Chelsea trainee Smith, who spent three months on loan at Carrow Road in 2007, was the O's hero after his 20th-minute goal proved to be the winner.

But the Orient defence also deserved credit as they worked tirelessly to keep out the Canaries.

Wilbraham headed wide from Russell Martin's cross, Fox fired wide from 20 yards and Wes Hoolahan was denied by visiting keeper Paul Jones.

Orient did respond, but Jonathan Tehoue could not direct Charlie Daniels' corner on target and Matt Spring's long-range strike failed to test Norwich keeper Declan Rudd.

Barnett wasted a golden chance to level when he headed over after being left unmarked from a corner and the chances continued to come and go for the home side after the break.

Barnett headed over again on the hour mark, and Russell Martin and Anthony McNamee fired wide.

Substitute Paul-Jose M'Poku blazed Orient's only effort of the second half high and wide before Norwich's final efforts to force a replay saw Jones save from McNamee and Grant Holt head wide from the resultant corner.
