On November 27th 2007, Rovers played Leyton Orient in a FA Cup First Round replay. The first game at Sincil Bank ended 1-1 thanks to a late Rickie Lambert equaliser. Originally the game was to be played a week earlier on November 20th, but due to a waterlogged pitch at the Memorial Stadium the game was rearranged for seven days later.

Bristol Rovers v Leyton OrientEdit

After taking an early lead through Craig Hinton, Orient pegged Rovers back on 28 minutes to make it all square once again. Wayne Cordon was sent off for Orient early in the second half, but the 10-men took the lead just minutes later. Rovers again relied on a late goal from Rickie Lambert, this time a penalty after Jabo Ibehre handled in the box. Ibehre was sent off, Lambert scored the penalty and the game went to extra time.

Adam Boyd got his second and Orient's third from the penalty spot to put 9-man Orient in front again. But there was to be one last equaliser, this time from Craig Disley who scored a header with little more than 10 minutes of extra time left.

The game went to penalties with Rovers winning 6-5 to set up second round tie with Rushden & Diamonds.
