Sammy Moore may be forced to watch from the sidelines this weekend when Dover Athletic visit Cambridge United in the first round of the FA Cup.

Leyton Orient’s midfielder is currently on loan at the National League outfit and featured during their 4-1 loss to Tranmere Rovers last Saturday.

Moore played the full 90 minutes at the Crabble Athletic Ground, but it was a frustrating afternoon.

The 29-year-old might not need his boots tomorrow (Saturday) with Dover facing League Two side the U’s.

In the previous round at Burgess Hill Town, Moore wasn’t given permission by O’s to play in the FA Cup.

Therefore it might be a case of the ex-AFC Wimbledon man sitting in the stands while his current team-mates try to cause a shock.
