We want to thank you for your passionate support at last night's League Cup match away to MK Dons. We came so close to a victory, and though disappointed to lose in the dying minutes we are proud of the team's effort, and are grateful to those who travelled to watch the game.
However, we were very unhappy to see that the Orient fans were put so high up in a corner section of the Stadium MK on an evening when there were 25,000 empty seats in the ground. We believe that this was unsporting and unnecessary on the part of our opponents, and we have written to MK Dons to make them aware of our complaint.
We don't think that supporters, home or away, should be treated in that way and can only apologise to our fans that they were not better accommodated.
Up the O's!
The Board of Leyton Orient
