Leyton Orient fans were left with more questions than answers after appearing in the High Court again this morning over another winding-up petition. It was revealed that chairman Francesco Becchetti had paid off all four main creditors in full and so the winding-up petition was dismissed.

But more creditors could come forward and the intentions of the Italian remain unclear, which resulted in various O’s supporters expressing their concern about what the future holds for the National League club.
