After scoring his first goal for Leyton Orient on Saturday, defender Shaun Brisley has revealed he wouldn’t mind extending his stay with the club past the summer.

The 25-year-old moved to Brisbane Road on loan until the end of the season from League One outfit Peterborough United last month.

He has made a good impression since joining the east Londoners and his strike against Notts County gave his team a potentially crucial three points.

Brisley’s deal with Posh expires in the summer and the centre back was asked what the future holds for him after the match at Meadow Lane.

He said: “My contract is up at the end of the year and that’s why I have jumped at the opportunity to get some game time here.

“I felt I wasn’t going to get as much playing time as I would like at Peterborough. I want to get as many matches as I can and we’ll see what happens come June.

“I’d definitely think about a permanent move. I have enjoyed my time here, I have only been at the club for three weeks, but it has been three perfect weeks so far.”

The Peterborough ace revealed he first heard of Orient’s interest before Ian Hendon was sacked midway through January.

O’s former head coach was looking to bring Brisley to Brisbane Road and although that move stalled, it was finalised once Nolan took over.

And the former Macclesfield ace is loving his time in E10, adding: “It wasn’t a hard decision to join the club.

“I knew about the interest a couple of weeks before the move happened from the old gaffer, but obviously that didn’t go through.

“Once the club came back in for me I jumped at the chance to get some game time here.”

While their encounter with the Magpies wasn’t a classic, Brisley’s strike was enough to give the visitors some reward.

He felt it was good to see Orient show they can do the dirty side of the game and hopes the win can be a pivotal one.

“I don’t think the match in general was a good one to watch, but coming away from home sometimes you have got to do the knitty gritty part to get a result and that’s what we have done,” said Brisley.

“You have to take every game seriously because this could be the one that makes a difference come the end of the season.”
