A trip down memory lane.

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Continuing our '25 Years in the EFL' series, we look back at the club's first ever League Cup tie on this day in 1993; a 2-0 victory at third-tier Leyton Orient.

A crowd of 4,151 were inside Brisbane Road to see the league newcomers spring an upset on the third tier O’s, winning 2-0 with goals from Steve Thompson and Tim Langford.

O’Neill commented: "I am very, very pleased. I thought it was the best we have defended for quite some time. I honestly thought we showed a great deal of commitment with last ditch tackles just beating Leyton Orient to the ball nearly every time.”
