Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade has paid tribute to Tom Clarke and Ben Alnwick as their loan deals come to a conclusion.

Midfielder Clarke returned to fellow League One side Huddersfield having featured 12 times for the Os while goalkeeper Alnwick is back at Tottenham after playing eight games.

The duo both spent the maximum 93-day period with Orient, and Slade told the club's official website: "Tom's contribution was fantastic. We improved as a team during his time here and he was a big part of that.

"Ben came in at a critical time too when we've been short of goalkeepers for one reason or another, and he's handled himself in a really competent manner."
