PREVIEW: Maidenhead United (A)

access_time 3 years ago

Justin Edinburgh’s men come in to the game on the back of their first defeat of the season against Sutton United last weekend.

A single second half Sutton goal was enough to halt the strong run of the O’s who had previously broke the Club record for the best start in history.

Maidenhead come in to the game with three wins in their last six games including a 3-1 victory over Chesterfield.

However last weekend, Alan Devonshire’s men were on the end of a heavy 3-0 defeat at York Road against Salford City which now leaves the Berkshire side in 16th place 12 points behind the O’s.


Head Coach Justin Edinburgh confirmed James Brophy and George Elokobi are both nearing full-fitness in his recent pre-game interview.

With the inclusion of the two, Edinburgh will have a familiar selection headache having kept a consistent side for the previous ten games.

The referee for tomorrow’s clash is Declan Bourne, assisted by Marcus Carmichael, Damith Bandara and Steven Rea.

This is the official’s first season in the National League and will be in charge of an O’s game for the first time at York Road.


There are 320 tickets remaining for tomorrow’s match. Any unsold tickets will be available for purchase on the turnstile on Bell Street from 1:30pm. The Club’s allocation was extended from 800 fans to 1200 earlier this week, exceeding last season’s total of 734 supporters.
