Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn revealed the club's next manager would be an established name capable of preserving their League One status.

Kevin Nugent is currently in temporary charge as caretaker boss following the departure of Martin Ling, but was forced to settle for a point as Southend substitute James Walker cancelled out Adam Boyd's early goal in a 1-1 draw at Brisbane Road.

Hearn said: "It will be an outside appointment and hopefully someone who is ready to get involved in what is a dog fight."

He continued: "Working with a budget Martin Ling did a fantastic job, but if we want to stay in League One we've got to roll the dice and see if we can."
