Fulham survived two late Paul McCallum goals to beat League One's Leyton Orient and progress to the second round of the EFL Cup.

Dennis Adeniran put the Championship side ahead when he headed past Orient goalkeeper Sam Sargeant.

Cauley Woodrow doubled Fulham's lead with a spectacular long-range effort, and curled past Sargeant shortly after.

McCallum headed Dean Cox's corner home to give Orient hope, before the two combined again to make it 3-2 late on.
