Bristol City manager Gary Johnson was pleased with the resolve of his side after they sent League One rivals Leyton Orient crashing out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Wednesday night.
The Robins fell behind in the second half, but goals from Barry Corr, Phil Jevons and Richard Keogh in a 20-minute period put Johnson's side into the hat for the third round draw.
"It was always going to be tough against a team in our own division and Martin (Ling, Orient manager) had said beforehand his team needed a win in whatever competition," he told the club's official website.
"They started confidently and we both had a couple of chances, but once we got an equaliser we opened them up a bit more and in the end I was really pleased with the three goals."
