The Football Supporters’ Federation and Blackpool Supporters’ Trust (BST) are hosting a day of action against the game’s unpopular owners on Saturday called Judgement Day 3.

Leyton Orient play their final League Two match of the campaign at Bloomfield Road, a 5.30pm kick-off and it will be their last in the Football League for at least a season.

O’s relegation to the National League was confirmed on April 22 following a disastrous year on and off the pitch at Brisbane Road.

Chairman Francesco Becchetti has ripped the heart out of Orient and they are in a mess heading into the summer.
