- Orient Official Site - QPR Friendly For O's Behind closed doors match on Tuesday

ORIENT'S preparations for the new campaign continue on Tuesday with a behind closed doors match at Queens Park Rangers.

It will be the second training ground friendly contested by Russell Slade's men this summer following their victory over a Wolverhampton Wanderers XI at the east Londoners' training camp.

Their last three official friendlies have ended in 1-0 defeats so Slade will be looking for more sharpness from his team in an attacking sense.

The game kicks off at 1pm and we'll be carrying updates on our twitter feed whilst reports and reaction will appear here on leytonorient.com  - Orient

Local hero: Bellamy rejects QPR's 60k-a-week to earn half that at Cardiff

Striker is going 'home' to help Bluebirds chase promotion to the Premier League despite a much more lucrative offer from Hoops

Craig Bellamy is turning down a staggering �60,000-a-week offer to be reunited with Mark Hughes at QPR to sign for his beloved hometown club Cardiff.

Liverpool's Welsh dragon has his heart set on going back to his roots,despite a remarkable personal offer from ambitious Rangers.

Bellamy is agreeing a package at Cardiff where his wages will be less than a half of what he could earn at Loftus Road - although there will also be other incentives for him.

Bellamy claimed 'unfinished business' when a year-long loan spell at Cardiff from Manchester City in 2010-2011 ended in play-off semis defeat, and he now aims to see that job through.

The Championship club are still pushing the boat out for him by their standards, but the move is only happening because Bellamy is putting his heart ahead of his wallet.

The 33-year-old, who played for fellow Welshman Hughes at Blackburn and Manchester City, has finalised his exit from Liverpool after playing for Great Britain in this summer's Olympic Games.

Bellamy could be one of many forwards leaving Liverpool, with Juventus eyeing Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll also linked with a move away..." Mirror
