Leyton Orient have appointed their fourth manager of the season in the shape of Fabio Liverani.

The former Genoa coach has replaced Mauro Milanese - whose spell in charge came to an end on Monday after just 43 days - and has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal.

Ex-Italy and QPR defender Milanese, who took the job in October but won just two of his eight matches in the dug-out, has returned to his previous position as the club's sporting director.

Leyton Orient become the latest lower league team to inflict more cup misery on Aston Villa, winning 1-0 at Villa Park.

Romain Vincelot's header three minutes from time sees Orient join Bradford in humiliating Villa in this competition, with the Bantams famously defeating the Premier League team over a two-legged semi-final in 2013.

Rotherham win promotion to the Championship

Rotherham came from two goals down to win promotion to the Championship after a dramatic penalty shoot-out at Wembley.

Leyton Orient appeared to be in control when Moses Odubajo and Dean Cox struck in the space of five minutes to give the O's a 2-0 lead at the interval.

But Alex Revell pulled a goal back for Rotherham with a tap-in from a free-kick, and the 30 year-old levelled matters in stunning fashion five minutes later, volleying over Jamie Jones from outside the area.

After tiring half hour of extra-time, Rotherham's Lee Frecklington saw his spot kick brilliantly parried by Jones, while Adam Collin denied Orient's Mathieu Baudry.

Substitute Chris Dagnell, Orient's fifth penalty taker, needed to score to keep the O's alive, but his shot was saved by Collin.
