Orient boss Martin Ling admits that he is looking forward to the match at Huddersfield Town- a game that is relatively meaningless after the O`s managed to secure their League One safety last weekend.

It`s been a busy week for Ling after he released six players from the club and the O`s boss is delighted to get on with the football side of things and finish the season off in style.

‘I’m looking forward to this game,’ he said. ‘It’s been such a hectic week that it has been the last thing on my mind with all the releasing and contract negotiations that have gone on.
‘It was nice to get my training kit on instead of a suit on Thursday and Friday and we’ll go into tomorrow happy that we’re still in League One.

‘We’ll obviously be without the six players who have been released and there will be opportunities for people for other people, but we want to put a good performance.

‘Whenever you go into any game, whether it’s a testimonial, a pre-season match or an end-of-season game with nothing riding on it, you hope to put a good display on.

‘There will be fans travelling a long way to watch us, so we will be as professional as always and there are three points to play for. The more points we can get the better for us as we look to build for next season.’

‘There will be another three pros on the bench and there will a couple of scholars to make up the 16.

“There’s no big experimentation, although the scholars in the squad are being rewarded for the good season they’ve had at that level.’
