DOM Telford’s debut goal for the Pilgrims was just what he had imagined it would be.
The striker netted the second goal in Argyle’s 2-0 win over Leyton Orient, scoring just a couple of minutes after Callum McFadzean had broken the deadlock in the all Carabao Cup first round encounter.
It came in front of the Devonport end, something that Dom had foreseen.
“I am a bit of a visual person,” he said, after the victory. “So, this morning and last night, that is what I wanted to happen, and scoring down that end is unbelievable. I hope it’s not the last one.
“I picked the ball up – I think it was off one of their mistakes – I saw a little gap, and drove with it, and it opened up. I’ve always been taught to strike across the ’keeper, hard and low and just to see it hit the back of the net was some feeling – it never gets old.
“I’m delighted and hopefully it’s the first of many.”
Dom welcomed the second-round draw, which saw Argyle paired with Championship side Reading on what promises to be another wonderful Home Park night.
“The bigger the game, the better,” he said. “It a chance for us to impress against a top team. That’s why we looked for the win [against Orient]. We’ll crack on and try to do our best against a good side.”
