The Championship club’s hopes of progressing to the next round were dashed after Saturday’s five-goal thriller
Sierra Leone defender Osman Kaykay scored a goal for Queens Park Rangers as they were eliminated from the Carabao Cup by League One club Plymouth Argyle.
The Hoops suffered a 3-2 loss in the first round of the competition at Home Park on Saturday.
It was their first competitive outing in the 2020-21 season ahead of their Championship opener against Nottingham Forest on September 12 at home.
QPR started Saturday’s encounter on the front foot after Ryan Manning fired them ahead as early as in the second minute.
A few minutes later, Joe Edwards ensured both teams went into the break level with his equaliser in the 32nd minute.
After the restart, Danny Moore put Plymouth Argyle ahead with his 55th-minute strike but his lead was short-lived by Kaykay’s goal two minutes later.
The Sierra Leone international and Osayi-Samuel were in action from start to finish for QPR but Frank Nouble’s match-winning strike for the League One outfit crushed their hearts in the 72nd minute.
