EFL CUP Plymouth Argyle 2 Leyton Orient 0

EFL logo cropRyan Lowe’s League Two pacesetters Plymouth Argyle continued their winning start with a 2-0 EFL Cup first round win over Leyton Orient.

Callum McFadzean got Argyle off the mark just before the hour with a measured finish into the far corner after cutting in from the left and playing a neat one-two with target man Ryan Taylor.

Three minutes later it was 2-0 as Dom Telford smashed in an angled strike off the far post to give Os diving keeper Dean Brill little chance.

Argyle came closest to breaking the deadlock in the last minute of the first half when skipper Gary Sawyer’s bullet-like header was headed off the goal-line by Orient defender Myles Judd.

Argyle – showing five changes from the side that started the 1-0 win over Colchester – began well with wing back Joe Riley sending a speculative angle shot just wide from the right.

Telford – making his first Argyle start – went even closer with a 20 yard drive that flew just past the post.

Orient – with four players out – had their opportunities.

Just before Argyle scored striker Lee Angol went close with a shot across the face of goal and Daniel Happe headed just over on 90 minutes.
