Leyton Orient head coach Ross Embleton hopes that some more new faces can be brought in by the club before next weekend's game against Port Vale.

Orient have so far signed Lawrence Vigouroux on a free transfer and extended the loan of George Marsh from Tottenham Hotspur, while also loaning midfielder Dale Gorman to Newport County for the rest of the season.

As well as bringing some more players in, though, Embleton is expecting there to be a few outgoings.

After yesterday's 1-1 draw with Grimsby Town, he said: "It’s something that we’ve vigorously been looking at over the last couple of days to make sure that we cover the positions we want to cover. You’ve seen this week that the decision with George was made and at the same time Dale Gorman has gone out.

"There may be some potential for one or two others going the same way as well as the best thing for their futures which will then allow us to know exactly what we can do and how we can do it in terms of the recruitment plans.”

In terms of where to strengthen the squad, there are a variety of positions that Embleton wants to cover, but with the injury to Jamie Turley against Grimsby and the long-term absence of Sam Ling, full-back is of particular concern for the boss.

He said: “I am concerned at the fact we’ve lost Sam Ling and we’ve lost Jamie Turley who can cover that position. We’ve lost Joe Widdowson, albeit he’s getting very close to coming back so that position concerns me because of the amount of casualties we’ve got in that area at the moment, so that’s somewhere I’m looking at.

"Dale Gorman has gone out so I think we have to look at what we do in midfield. Then obviously we have to look at the top end of the pitch as well in terms of the fact we haven’t scored enough goals this season.”
