Find out what Sammy Moore, Michael Clark and Freddy Moncur have got up to over the past week
Leyton Orient’s Sammy Moore will be kicking his heels again tonight (Thursday), but can look forward to several games with Dover Athletic over the next few days.
The experienced midfielder is unable to feature for the Whites in the FA Cup and will therefore be watching this evening when they host League Two outfit Cambridge United.
Dover will go into the match with confidence after beating Solihull Moors 3-2 on Saturday in the National League.
Moore played 79 minutes before being replaced with Whites 3-1 up despite playing over half the game with 10 men.
After Dover’s cup tie this evening, they are back in league action this weekend and host Guiseley.
The former AFC Wimbledon ace should feature in that fixture and he’ll hope to be involved on Tuesday when Woking visit Crabble Athletic Ground.
It was another good week for Michael Clark after helping East Thurrock extend their unbeaten run.
Orient’s young defender played the whole of Saturday’s National League South match at Whitehawk with the Rocks winning 3-2.
East Thurrock have not lost since September 17 – a run of eight matches without defeat in all competitions.
Clark and the Rocks will look to maintain that record when St Albans City visit Rookery Hill this weekend.
A difficult encounter will be expected by the O’s youngster and East Thurrock, however, with City second in the standings.
Freddy Moncur and Bishop’s Stortford are set to face a tough task in the National League South on Saturday.
The Hertfordshire outfit host sixth-placed Dartford at the ProKit UK Stadium rooted to the basement of the table.
Last Saturday Moncur and Stortford made the trip to Oxford City for a crunch battle down the bottom.
City claimed a 3-1 home victory to move seven points clear of the struggling ProKit UK Stadium club.
