Leyton Orient have extended the loan of Tottenham goalkeeper Ben Alnwick for a further two months.

The 24-year-old joined Russell Slade's outfit at the start of September but only featured in three games before suffering a groin injury.

As he nears a return to full fitness, Slade has moved to secure the services of the former Sunderland stopper until December 10.

With fellow Spurs loanee David Button recuperating from a shoulder problem, Alnwick will hope to challenge Lee Butcher for his place between the sticks for Saturday's npower League One meeting with Bury.
