PREVIEW: Leyton Orient v Maidstone United

11 August 2017

The O’s welcome Maidstone United to E10 tomorrow (kick-off 3pm) for a second consecutive home fixture in the Vanarama National League.

Steve Davis’ men will be looking to carry their fine form over from Tuesday’s 3-1 victory over Solihull Moors at the Matchroom Stadium.

First Team Captain Charlie Lee opened the scoring for the O’s after 21 minutes before David Mooney tucked home after the break.

The away side pulled a goal back in the 76th minute through Afolayan Oladapo but George Elokobi converted moments later to secure the Club’s first three points of the season.

Maidstone United arrive in East London looking for their first win of the season having conceded a late equaliser at home to Maidenhead United on the opening day, before suffering a 2-0 defeat to National League new-boy’s Ebbsfleet United on Tuesday.

Jay Saunders’ men were promoted to the National League at the end of the 2015-16 season for the first time since their reformation and finished the last campaign in 14th place.

TEAM NEWS

Head Coach Steve Davis has a fully fit squad available at his disposal once again.

The O’s squad have come through the opening two fixtures unscathed injury wise, with trio Craig Clay, Josh Koroma and Romuald Boco pushing for starting spots having come off the bench on both occasions.
