'We can't be any worse at Orient': Barnsley await in FA Cup fourth round if Hull City can win replay
Steve Bruce labelled Hull City's performance against Leyton Orient "absolutely awful" after his team needed a last-gasp equaliser to stay in the FA Cup.
The Tigers will host Barnsley in the fourth round - if they can get past Orient in a replay at Brisbane Road.
City were fortunate to be in today's draw at all after Nick Proschwitz came to the rescue in the fourth minute of stoppage time to deny Orient a shock victory at the KC Stadium on Saturday.
David Mooney’s goal 12 minutes from time put the League One side on course for the fourth round, but Proschwitz's header earned a 1-1 draw.

"We can't be any worse playing down at Orient than we were playing out there [on Saturday]," said Bruce, who made nine changes to his starting 11.
"Only three players – the two central defenders and the goalkeeper – came anywhere near to producing what they can.
"The one thing you can say is that a lot of the players need more games.
"However, we had an experienced team out there and they did not perform.
"Will I play the same players in the replay? Possibly.
"If I'm honest it's a replay we could possibly do without, but we're still in the draw and still in the FA Cup."
Fourth round ties will be played over the weekend of January 26/27.
