The young goalkeeper has started a flurry of games in-between the sticks and has impressed, making some important saves to confirm valuable points.

Usually found on the right flank, Jordan Maguire-Drew was at the heart of a lot of Orient’s goals in December. The number ten assisted Lee Angol’s goal against Bristol Rovers in the Leasing.com Trophy. A week later he tapped home against Oldham. Deadly from a set piece; Maguire-Drew played his part in Jamie Turley’s goal against Cambridge, before bending in a superb 30-yard free kick.
On-loan from Tottenham, the midfielder has displayed real versatility in the last few months, playing in various midfield roles as well as covering at right back against Colchester United. Notably, Marsh was awarded Man of the match for an inspired performance against Bradford City.
