Barry Hearn has admitted Leyton Orient are at the last chance saloon when it comes to fighting West Ham`s bid to move into the Olympic Stadium.

The Orient chairman announced that he had applied for a judicial review two weeks ago, after London Legacy Development Corporation`s decision that West Ham were their preferred bidder for the Olympic Stadium.

Hearn speaking to a press conference at the Nolan Partners Sport Industry Breakfast Club, stated that this could be his last stand in fighting the Irons for the stadium.

“If I lose this judicial review, I have got to walk.” Hearn stated.

If the review is not granted, West Ham could be named as tenants as early as Friday according to London 24.

The Matchroom Sport owner was still confident of getting a judicial review granted but admitted if he failed the O`s would have to plan a potential future away from Leyton.

“If I stay (at Brisbane Road), I get crushed. I don`t know where (Orient would re-locate to. Harlow has been mooted, Romford has been mooted, off the A13 down by the docks.”
