Robbie Simpson

Leyton Orient forward Robbie Simpson has extended his deal with the League One club until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old former Oldham man has not scored in his 11 appearances for the O's since joining in November.

"I feel like I've been a bit sharper every time I've played and hopefully my luck will change in front of goal!" he told the club website.external-link

"There's more to come from me. When I first came it was pretty clear that I wasn't match fit."

He added: "Now I feel my performances are up to a level nearer where they should be. I just need goals now as, at the end of the day, that's what strikers are judged on.

"I've settled in and built a relationship with the players, staff and everyone around the club and I'm pleased to continue that.

"I know I need to start chipping in with goals now as well and the ultimate goal is promotion for the football club."
