Slade: Disappointed not to get penalty
Russell Slade felt Leyton Orient should have been awarded a penalty before David Mooney's goal in the 1-1 FA Cup draw at Hull.
The striker, whose goal 12 minutes from time had put the visitors on course for the fourth round, appeared to be hauled down by Tigers defender Alex Bruce, who was the last man.
"I do think it was a penalty," Slade said. "He [Mooney] wouldn't want to go down in that position. He was hauled down so it was a penalty.
"But he took his goal well and he's very confident at the minute. It was a great cross and David finished it really well."
Nick Proschwitz earned the Championship outfit a 1-1 draw and a replay by heading home in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
Slade added: "We were positive but it was the manner in which we were disciplined and organised that pleased me. They have a very strong squad and we knew it was going to be a tough afternoon for us.
"It was probably one of our best performances of the season, particularly without the ball. We created a few chances, but we didn't have loads of problems defensively and that was the most pleasing aspect.
"You have to be disappointed having conceded so late on after having played so well.
"I thought we could have done a little bit more to stop the cross, and that was probably only the second free header they had in the whole game.
"It was disappointing to concede that goal as I think we did enough to go through in the tie. But the players are professional and we need to bounce back."
