Ling issues Leeds warning

06 Mar 2008 - 12:56:02

Leyton Orient manager Martin Ling insists he will seek court action if the Football League restores Leeds United's 15-point deduction.

The O's are battling Leeds for a play-off spot but United will leap from eighth to second if they have their points restored at a private arbitration hearing.

Such a prospect alarms Ling, who told the Daily Mail: "Rest assured that if we finish sixth and lose the final play-off spot to Leeds on a courtroom appeal, we'd be straight back in court and the whole episode would drag on.

"My big gripe with any change now is that we've been involved in a race all season in which Leeds have been 15 points behind us all. Indeed, we've factored that into all our plans."
