  • Leyton Orient (home ko 3:00pm)

    Well that's it, another season over for another year. Roll on August.

    We recorded one of our best wins of the season in East London back in November when we beat the Orient 3-1 with debut goals from Bo Henriksen and Richie Appleby.
    The other one came from Dean Bennett.

    For this game we will be without the services of Drewe Broughton, Ian Foster, Abdou Sall and Scott Stamps all serving match bans.

    This will leave the side looking a bit depleted and it will give Ian Britton another chance to prove his worth if he can cobble together a team to perform as well as last weeks team against Rushden.

    Tony Bird has said that he won't be staying after the end of the season and this could be his last game for us. It could also be last games for quite a few of the team with contracts up for renewal and Jan Molby sniffing around.

    We have no injuries to report and the starting eleven will be a mystery.

    Harriers (from):
    Brock, Danby, Joy, Smith, Clarkson, Ayres, Hinton, Ducros, Williams, Appleby, Davies, Henriksen, Shilton, Bennett, Larkin, Bird.

    Orient have improved in recent weeks after spending a long time near the foot of the table. In fact their slump started when we beat them!

    Their manager, Paul Brush, has cleared out the deadwood since then and bought in a few new faces. One of them is former Harriers target Carl Hutchings from Southend, the other two are Daniel Hatcher and Adam Newton on loan from West Ham.

    Leaving at the end of the season will be Iyseden Christie. Orient are not renewing his contract so he becomes a free agent.

    The only injury doubt for them is Simon Downer who has been out for the past six months with tendonitis.

    Orient (from):
    Barrett, Bayes, Joseph, Smith, McGhee, Lockwood, Brazier, Hutchings, Jones, Harris, Minton, Martin, Ibehre, Newton, Watts, McLean, Hatcher, Christie, Canham.
