ARGYLE maintained their unbeaten start in the EFL Merit League Two with a fine victory over Leyton Orient in Woodford Green.

The game was played on a tricky and very bobbly pitch, leaving Argyle Academy Directory Kevin Hodges to say: “We adapted the better to the conditions to dominate the game.”

Argyle had a good start to the game as they pushed Orient back on the defensive and Klaidi Lolos missed a good chance to give his side a second-minute lead.

The visitor's pressure told again on 22 minutes when Jude Boyd cut inside from the left to drill a powerful low drive into the corner of the home goal.

Isaac Burdon had the ball in the back of the net, only to see his effort disallowed for offside, and minutes later, Adam Randall's free-kick found Rio Garside guiding the ball home, but he also had his effort ruled out, this time for a foul on the 'keeper.

Argyle finished the half on the attack and only two fine saves by the home 'keeper kept out efforts from Tom Purrington and Randall.

Randall again went close, four minutes after the break, and it was the Argyle midfielder threading through a great pass that saw Lolos spinning in the area to volley home on 61 minutes.

Argyle continued to press with Boyd and Peck denied by a great double save before substitute Rubin Wilson and Lolos both failed to hit the target and Aaron Goulty forced a fine save out of the home 'keeper.

Plymouth Argyle: Harry Townsend, Isaac Burdon (Andy Burn 80), Reuben Collum, Tom Purrington (Charlie Miller 75), Ollie Tomlinson, Michael Peck, Aaron Goulty, Adam Randell, Klaidi Lolos, Rio Garside, Jude Boyd (Rubin Wilson (76).
