Leyton Orient back angry Oldham supporters by allowing them to buy tickets for Brisbane Road clash at the ground after Latics officials moved to bar their OWN FANS due to protests against owners
- Oldham fans have been protesting against the club’s hated ownership
- The club have suspended ticket sales to non-season-ticket holders
- They play away at Leyton Orient on Friday but the O’s are helping rival fans
- Orient will allow Oldham fans to buy tickets on the day, with a protest expected
Leyton Orient are allowing Oldham fans to pay on the day to watch Friday’s clash, in a slap in the face for officials and a victory for fans of the Lancashire crisis club.
Sportsmail reported on Thursday how beleaguered Oldham, at the centre of continued protests from supporters over the disastrous ownership of former agent Abdallah Lemsagam, had suspended ticket sales for the fixture to non-season-ticket holders.
Recent matches at Boundary Park have seen pitch invasions, and a joint protest with O’s fans against Oldham’s ownership was expected during the clash at Brisbane Road.
However, Orient — who had their own issues with previous owners — have now announced that Oldham fans will be permitted to pay on the day for the League Two fixture.
Oldham have also suspended ticket sales to non-season-ticket holders for their next home match against Hartlepool a week on Saturday.
