access_time 3 years ago

Justin Edinburgh’s side enter the fixture unbeaten after Saturday’s draw with Barrow AFC, when Raul Correia’s late equaliser meant each side left with a point.

Jay Saunders’ Maidstone United have had a mixed start to the season. Opening their campaign with a 1-1 draw against Hartlepool before taking maximum points at Dagenham & Redbridge before being defeated 3-0 by FC Halifax Town at The Shay on Saturday.

Maidstone finished 19th last season and reached the second round of the FA Cup beating Cheltenham, before being defeated by then League One MK Dons.


The O’s are likely to have a similar squad available to the side that drew with Barrow AFC last weekend.

Josh Koroma will be pushing for a starting place having come off the bench and assisted Macauley Bonne’s second goal meanwhile Charlie Lee will be hoping to make his second consecutive start tonight.

It was confirmed earlier this week that defender George Elokobi will be out of action for a number of weeks while he recovers from a grade two hamstring tear.


The away allocation for O’s fans is now SOLD OUT.


The referee for tonight’s clash will be David Rock, assisted by Robert Evans and Paul Evans with Ivan Gelov as the fourth official.

The Hertfordshire born referee has taken charge of two National League games this season and has brandished five yellow cards and awarded two penalties.
