Carabao Cup: Leyton Orient 3-2 Plymouth Argyle

Danny Johnson’s injury-time winner saw Leyton Orient come from 2-0 down to beat Plymouth Argyle and set up a third round Carabao Cup tie with Tottenham.

Goals from Pantuche Camara and Kelland Watts saw Argyle lead at the break in an entertaining tie.

Louis Dennis’ volley brought Orient back into it before Jobi McAnuff lobbed Michael Cooper to equalise.

Both sides had chances to win it, but it was Johnson who side-footed home after a mistake by Scott Wootton.

It is the first time in six years that Orient have made the third round of the EFL Cup and they could face their shirt sponsor Harry Kane in the third round at Brisbane Road next week.

The England captain paid to promote charities on the front of Orient’s shirts in May.

League Two Orient could have had the game out of sight inside the first 15 minutes as Jordan Maguire-Drew saw two efforts go just wide while Argyle keeper Cooper was also forced into a good double save.

Camara’s opener – his first goal for Argyle – came after a mazy run by Ryan Hardie, who struck the crossbar soon after.

Watts side-footed home well after a lovely piece of play by Danny Mayor before Orient’s Ruel Sotiriou’s curling effort beat Cooper but hit the bar.

In the final three minutes of the first half Lawrence Vigouroux saved well with his legs from Hardie, George Cooper shot just wide and Dominic Telford had a goal disallowed as the League One side pressed for a third.

But Orient were much better after the break as Sotiriou forced a good save from Cooper after Dennis had side-footed his side’s opener and Maguire-Drew had an effort headed off the line by Watts late on before Johnson secured Orient’s progression.
