Leyton Orient boss Martin Ling has extended striker Sam Parkin's stay at the club while he ponders his forward options.
Orient are currently struggling to find the net and have notched just four goals in their last six matches.
Parkin moved to the Os on loan from Luton at the end of October and Ling has now opted to keep the 27-year-old as he searches for reinforcements.
He told the Orient official website: "We`ve extended Sam's loan for another 13 days to take him up to the maximum 93-day period.
"Whoever we brought in wouldn't have been able to play in the FA Cup on Tuesday, so keeping Sam for that gives us more options and he'll also be available for Bristol Rovers and Southend.
"We'll make a decision then on where we`re going to go."
