Orient’s trip to MK Dons is under threat

Slade unhappy as O’s face two games in three days

Orient’s trip to MK Dons on Tuesday, November 6 could be under threat.

The O’s FA Cup clash against Gloucester City has been moved to a Sunday, as the non-league side share Cheltenham Town’s ground – and O’s boss Russell Slade is not keen to travel to MK Dons a little more than 48 hours later.

Orient had hoped to reschedule the MK Dons game for Wednesday, but could not come to a compromise with their League One rivals.

“The issue has not been resolved and it’s in the hands of the Football League,” said Slade.

“MK Dons are not keen to move the game to a Wednesday, so perhaps it can be played at a later date, because it’s not right that we should have to play on Sunday and Tuesday.”
