NEW Orient boss Geraint Williams has wasted little time boosting his attacking options, by signing striker Scott McGleish on loan from Wycombe Wanderers until the end of the season.

It will be the 35-year-old striker's third spell at Brisbane Road and he becomes Williams' first signing. He will go straight into the squad for Saturday's relegation showdown with Crewe Alexandra.

Orient, the lowest scorers in League One, need more firepower and Williams believes that McGleish, who has scored over 200 career goals, fits the bill.

The pair have worked together before as McGleish had a spell at Colchester when Williams was assistant manager at the Essex club.

Following a brief spell at Peterborough, he joined Orient in November 1996 and scored seven league goals in 36 games. He went on to play for Barnet, Colchester, Northampton and Wycombe, where he scored 26 goals last season.
