Final Third Development League South: Leyton Orient 4 Cambridge United 0

Leyton Orient comfortably defeated Cambridge United 4-0 in their ‘Final Third’ Development League South at Brisbane Road this afternoon.

Kevin Nolan gave various first team players a chance to impress and they didn’t let him down to give him a headache before Barnet this weekend.

Young goalkeeper Sam Sargeant started while captain Mathieu Baudry was involved again and Frazer Shaw played at left-back.

Blair Turgott and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin were on the wings while Sammy Moore featured in the centre of midfield.

The O’s didn’t need long before taking the lead when Turgott’s short corner found Jahraldo-Martin and he curled into the net.

And it was 2-0 in the 20th minute when Gnanduillet’s shot across goal was fired in first time by Kashket.

It remained that way until half time, although young defender Aron Pollock was substituted in the 43rd minute with a facial injury.

Michael Clark replaced him and it only took the east Londoners eight minutes after the restart to extend their lead.

Turgott’s free kick was headed in by Gnanduillet before Jahraldo-Martin was replaced by youngster Josh Koroma.

Kashket’s afternoon was brought to an end in the 64th minute after Omozusi fouled him and Sam Alderson replaced the talented forward.

With 11 minutes remaining the O’s substitute made an impact when he picked up a loose ball and smashed past U’s custodian Jonathan Henly.

It finished 4-0 to the east Londoners with Alderson and Kashket showing the future is bright while Jahraldo-Martin will hope to start at the Hive on Saturday.

Leyton Orient: Sargeant, Ling, Baudry (Barker 63), Pollock (Clark 43), Shaw, Turgott, Moore, Agyemang, Jahraldo-Martin, Kashket (Alderson 64), Gnanduillet.
