Plymouth Argyle have issued this statement following their 3-2 loss to Leyton Orient:

"During Tuesday night's match against Leyton Orient......one of our ballboys was shoved to the ground by Orient captain Liam Kelly.

We have reviewed videos of the incident and we regard any physical or oral assault against our ballboys, or any representative of Argyle, to be utterly unacceptable.

We have reported the incident to the FA for them to take the appropriate action.

We are glad to say that the ballboy, although shocked by the incident, is otherwise okay and we thank the Green Army, on his behalf, for their concerns."
