The clash at Meadow Park on December 8 will now kick-off at 12.35pm

Leyton Orient’s National League game away to Boreham Wood on December 8 has been selected to be broadcast live by BT Sport in what will now be a 12.35pm kick-off at Meadow Park instead of the traditional 3pm start.

The O’s first match of the 2018/19 campaign was shown live on TV and it produced late drama as Justin Edinburgh’s men netted towards the end of the opener to salvage a 1-1 draw at big-spending Salford City.

Orient will now be on the box again in six weeks time and they will be looking to clinch a maiden victory in front of the BT Sport cameras.

During the 2017/18 season, O’s lost against Sutton United, Hartlepool United, Tranmere Rovers and Ebbsfleet United live on BT Sport when Steve Davis was head coach – with the latter defeat signalling the end of his time in charge at Brisbane Road.

Current boss Edinburgh did see Orient hold champions Macclesfield Town to a 1-1 draw in April, also live on BT Sport, and after drawing at Salford, will hope for a win away to Wood on December 8.

The previous league encounter, back on August 18, ended 1-0 to Orient after Macauley Bonne’s second-half penalty.
