Leyton Orient injury woes have increased after midfielder Romain Vincelot underwent minor knee surgery yesterday, but have quickly filled the void with the loan signing of Millwall’s Josh Wright.

Vincelot picked up the injury against MK Dons, and it is believed the Frenchman could miss around six weeks ahead of a hopeful return before the end of 2014.

However, the O’s have moved quickly to bring in Millwall’s Wright on loan until January 3, 2015.

The 24-year-old had been training with the club for the past few weeks after cutting short his loan at fellow League One outfit Crawley Town.

The Bethnal Green-born midfielder had spent a spell on loan at Brisbane Road last season, but that was cut short after just two substitute appearances because of an injury crisis at the New Den.

Wright, who will wear the number 17 shirt, can come straight into the side for tonight’s home game against highflying Preston North End, while he is also available for both the FA Cup and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
