Being in self-isolation has been tough both personally and for the entire squad, says Leyton Orient defender Josh Coulson.

The O's have been forced into a seven-day period of isolation after it was confirmed that one of the players had contracted Coronavirus.

This means that players have had to follow home workouts set by the club and they've had to find other ways of keeping themselves entertained while unable to train.

Coulson said: "We’re obviously used to being around each other all the time. I get to spend a lot of time with my two kids and my wife which is brilliant, but a three-year-old and one that’s two on Friday can test my patience!

"It’s difficult because all you want to do is be out there training and working towards the weekend and obviously a game. It’s tough mentally. Physically we can get out and about, speaking now I’m on a run that the fitness coach has put on. We have to cover 5k and I was bored of running on the pitch on my own so I’ve gone for a leisurely stroll.

“As silly as that may sound, it is [hard to motivate yourself]. When you’re cooped up in your house, knowing that you’ve got to get out and do a run or push yourself, it’s mentally tough. But once you do it, you feel good for it. There’s always a reward.”
