Leyton Orient's Liam Kelly questioned if the governing bodies are doing enough to save historic football clubs such as themselves after their 2-2 draw with Luton Town on Good Friday.

Kelly penned his name on the scoresheet when he tapped the ball home from the penalty spot to gain an equaliser from Danny Hylton's first half goal.

Tristan Abrahams made it 2-1 before Isaac Vassell gained the point for the promotion chasers.

The 27-year-old also praised the work of backroom staff at the club after it was revealed for a third time in 13 days they had not received their any payment from March.

When asked how tough is it not knowing what is happening with their wages or at the club he said: "It is the uncertainty.

"If I am being honest, you look at the governing bodies are they doing enough to make sure this football club stays in business?"

"This is a football that has been a member for how many years now? The PFA have been fantastic with us coming in and helping us out.

"But for me, there is no one helping the staff out, the office staff out, the medical team, who is helping them out?

"There is a big question mark whether enough is being done to help them."

In mid-week, it was revealed the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) had paid half of the players March wages.

However, the former Oldham Athletic player was keen to stress this was given to them in a loan form.

"I don't want people to think we have been paid because it is not like that," said Kelly.

"It is a percentage, it is a loan it has to be paid back. If we do not get paid from the football club that money has to go back.

"That money is just to keep us going to make sure we turn up to training and pay bills.

"But as I said the other staff, they are on a different boat and every single player feels for them."

Once again the O's faithful were in full voice at Kenilworth Road backing the players through what has been a difficult time.

Last month, the east London Club were handed a winding-up petition from HMRC over an unpaid tax bill believed to be around £125,000 to £250,000.

Owner Francesco Becchetti has since paid the initial bill but other creditors have taken over the petition and Orient are due to appear in High Court once again on Monday, June 12. 

Kelly said: "All the players understand how tough this is for the fans at the minute.

"They have supported this club for how many years? They have been through thick and thin but I don't think they deserve this.

"All we can we do as a team is go out and do the best we can for them."
