Ross Embleton will again take charge of Leyton Orient on Saturday against Scunthorpe United following the sacking of Carl Fletcher.
Fletcher spent just 29 days at the club but was sacked on Thursday following a shock FA Cup defeat to non-league Maldon & Tiptree.
The O's did not win a league game under Fletcher, losing 1-0 away at bottom side Morecambe in their last league game.
They have also picked up a 1-1 draw with Carlisle and suffered a 4-0 defeat to Plymouth Argyle in recent weeks, sitting in 16th place heading into Saturday's contest.
Dean Brill could return in goal, with young keeper Sam Sargeant having started in the FA Cup and in the Leasing.com Trophy game against Brighton.
