Plymouth are out of the league cup... but only just.

The lost to Championship side Burnley three-two on penalties on Tuesday night.

The Pilgrims equipped themselves well against superior opposition and were unlucky to go behind to Charlie Austin header before half-time..

However, in the last minute of the 90, Robbie Williams' penalty restored parity and extra-time ensued.

The extra 30 minute remained goalless and despite a save from Cole in the shoot-out, the Pilgrims lost out 3-2.

Pilgrims goalie Jake Cole said: "I love penalty shoot outs. I really enjoy them. I managed to get the first one. Got my hands on the second one. It was disappointing not to go through on penalties but it was a good effort with the boys."
