Leyton Orient 0-1 Sheff Utd: Match Report - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game as it happened.Higdon settles it earlyMichael Higdon scored after just two minutes to secure Sheffield United a 1-0 win at fellow League One side Leyton Orient in the Capital One Cup.The Blades came fast out of the blocks and, having won a first minute corner, went ahead soon after.Jamie Murphy broke down the left and picked out Higdon who rose highest in the area and sent a powerful header from close range into the roof of the net.Murphy pushed for a second and unleashed a fierce shot from 25 yards but it lacked direction.Orient responded positively with Jobi McAnuff testing visiting keeper Mark Howard with a well-directed 20-yard drive and then Jay Simpson got round the back of the opposition defence before sending a pass across the face of goal but none of his colleagues were on hand to apply a finishing touch.Despite enjoying the greater possession for much of the game, Orient found it increasingly difficult to break down a well-drilled Blades defence although left-back Elliot Omozusi did have a rasping 25-yard drive tipped onto a post by Howard
