The O's have a number of players out of contract in June including the likes of Marvin Ekpiteta, Ruel Sotiriou, Sam Sargeant, James Dayton, Matt Harrold, Dale Gorman, James Alabi, Arthur Janata and player/coach Jobi McAnuff.

And the boss has insisted work has begun on tieing down players to new deals while eyeing targets to bring in to bolster the squad during the summer.

"We're making decisions all the time, ultimately we want to get better, some of that will be getting better by getting some of those boys on new contracts and knowing they're going to help out build for next year.

"Unfortunately some of that will be that people are not offered new deals and we have to look to other areas or people to help us improve.

"That's the reality of football and we have to show that strength in character to make those decisions.

"We've already started our process in terms of planning for next year and how that's going to start to look.

"Obviously we haven't got the names and faces exactly nailed down, but the work is already being put in."
