Hull City fortunate in Capital One Cup win
Tigers scrape a win against League One Leyton Orient from late substitute Robbie Brady.
Robbie Brady came off the bench to secure Hull City a third round spot in the Capital One Cup with a 1-0 victory over Leyton Orient.
Resting the team for a trip to Manchester City on Saturday, Steve Bruce named a completely fresh squad to the that grabbed their first premier league win against Norwich last Saturday.
Those that played didn't do themselves many favours in east London and it took Robbie Brady to come from the bench in extra time to break the deadlock and help Hull City progress to the third round.
The hosts settled the quickest and with Hull naming a reserve team to face them it was much easier for them to ease into the game in the early stages along with the confidence of the best league start in 103 years.
David Meyler saw a header cleared off the Leyton Orient goal line just after the half time break which was the closest that both teams got the scoring within the normal ninety minutes.
Bruce then added Brady from the bench in the second half of extra time and it didn't take long for the Irish International to impress when he scored a won the game for The Tigers.
