The hosts flew out of the blocks and were ahead on four minutes when top-scorer Paul Clayton fired under Ryan Allsop from 12 yards.

Ben Tomlinson then struck a post and Josh Law's deflected free-kick hit Allsop's bar as the non-league side dominated but Dean Cox levelled for Orient against the run of play on 25 minutes.

And on the half-hour mark the visitors were ahead when Lee Cook's corner was flicked on and Mooney - who scored the goal that broke Gloucester's resistance in the previous round - volleyed home.

Alfreton were shell-shocked and Mooney had his second just six minutes later, heading home Cook's left-wing cross.

On 52 minutes Alfreton pulled a goal back as Tomlinson scrambled home from close range and while the hosts peppered Allsop's goal - Law hitting the bar with another free-kick and Tomlinson from open play - Cox grabbed another late on.
