Maidstone will put their unbeaten record on the line against the man who fired them to promotion.

Boss Jay Saunders is well aware of the threat posed by striker Ade Olorunda, who returns to the Gallagher Stadium with new club Lewes.

Olorunda scored 18 times, including a play-off final double, to help United win promotion from Ryman League, Division 1 South. Stones wanted him to stay but tax implications led to his exit.

Saunders said: “It was well publicised I wanted to keep Ade. I hope he gets a good reception because he played a massive part in our promotion.

“It’ll be strange to see him playing against us but these things happen.

“I’m just hoping he doesn’t come back to haunt us. Lewes are unbeaten as well and it’ll be interesting to see what they’re all about. One thing you know about Gary Wilson (manager) sides is they are always well organised and difficult to beat.”

Rory Hill and Richard Davies have recovered from hamstring injuries but Danny Lye (ill) is doubtful for Saturday's Ryman League Premier Division match.
