Leyton Orient kicked out of EFL Cup, Spurs given bye to next round

Spurs will play Chelsea on Tuesday

Leyton Orient has been kicked out of the EFL Cup.

They have forfeited their third round game against Tottenham, which was cancelled after a number of O’s players tested positive for coronavirus.

Spurs have received a bye to the fourth round.

They will take on Chelsea on Tuesday, 29 September.

In a statement, the EFL said: “The Round Three tie scheduled for Tuesday, 22 September between Leyton Orient and Tottenham Hotspur could not take place following the issue by Waltham Forest Borough Council of an order preventing the match being played as planned. This followed a number of Leyton Orient players testing positive for Covid-19.

“The EFL Board has determined that, in line with Carabao Cup Rule 5.1, the club was unable to fulfil its obligations to complete the fixture by virtue of the council’s order and shall therefore forfeit the tie.”

Orient’s head coach, Ross Embleton, said the news was devastating.

Those who tested positive are all self-isolating and Orient’s League Two game against Walsall, scheduled for Saturday, has also been postponed.
