League One Plymouth beat Championship side QPR in an entertaining Carabao Cup first round tie.

Ryan Manning gave the visitors the lead in the opening minutes before Joe Edwards levelled for the hosts, who were promoted from League Two in 2019-20.

Danny Mayor put the Pilgrims in front before Osman Kakay equalised for the Rs with his first goal in senior football.

The home side won it when debutant Frank Nouble volleyed in from Conor Grant’s cross with 12 minutes to go.
