ORIENT manager Geraint Williams pulled no punches after Saturday's defeat by Huddersfield Town.

At the end of the game the O's boss admitted: "In the first half we looked a shambles.

"Individually and as a group there was not enough quality out there," he said.

Williams could take very few positives from the game.

"We didn't have our first shot on target until the 94th minute and that's not happened since I have been here. It says a lot about our how we played."

The worrying thing for Williams was the huge difference in performance levels in the space of a week.

During the 2-0 win over Walsall, O's looked impressive. Fast forward and against Huddersfield they were awful.

"We were up on the ceiling last week and down on the floor this week," said Williams.

"We have got to learn from it and we have to be somewhere near that line in the middle all of the time.We have certainly got to be better than we were today.

"It was the exact opposite to last week when we looked so good defensively, we were so solid, we created chances going forward and scored goals."

The O's boss was also disappointed with his side's attitude.

"I didn't think there was the belief that we could get back in the game once their second goal went in," he reflected.

Saturday's sad show may encourage Williams to move into the loan market before the window slams shut today (Thursday).

"We will wait and see," he said. "We are looking for players all the time, as is the case with most clubs.

"We will look at Saturday's performance and look at the squad and see if there is anyone out there within the budget who we can bring in to improve things. We will be looking all over, at every position.
