Orient Reported To FA After Plymouth Win

Orient Reported To FA After Plymouth Win

Leyton Orient's dramatic win at Plymouth wasn't enough to take us out of the bottom two but it has seen a complaint made to the Football Association.

Plymouth have claimed Orient Liam Kelly had pushed one of their ball boys. They were 'shoved to the ground' by the O's captain according to the Pilgrims.

Having reviewed video footage with the boy 'shocked by the incident' but 'otherwise OK' Plymouth's statement was quoted by the BBC as also saying.

'We regard any physical or oral assault against our ball boys, or any representative of Argyle, to be utterly unacceptable.'

It was a night that Plymouth boss Derek Adams wasn't happy about as he feels Chris Sarginson should have sent off Kelly for a previous foul also questioning how Nicky Hunt also got away without a red.

He told BBC Radio Devon:

'The referee didn't have a good night. I'm really unsure how Leyton Orient had 11 players on the park. Kelly should have been sent off for his tackle on [Antoni] Sarcevic. [Nicky] Hunt should have been sent off as well, how he stayed on the park I'll never know. The referee didn't have his best night.'

The Beeb said Orient had been contacted for comment but didn't quote any reply.
