Cryptic and quick crossword, with both clues giving the same answer.

15 down (8) _S_O_D_Y
Cryptic: Time empty lorry afterwards
Quick: Following the first thing

7 down (6) P_Y_N_
Cryptic: Quietly resting when working to and fro
Quick: Working steadily

Really stuck on these last two - any help gratefully received!

Of course, rl, it is secondly - well done! I had an s instead of an e which was incorrect as 16 across is DISCOUNTSTORES not DISCOUNTSHOPS.

Joker - I see - the 'LYING' part of 'PLYING' is the quietly resting part?

Thanks so much to you both!

Lucky Eight
Very often when "quiet,or quietly"is in a crossword then this can be substituted by the letter"p".
Hope this helps you.
