Winger Cook and midfielder Rowlands were both on target in Tuesday night's 2-2 draw at Brentford.

The veteran former QPR duo have been instrumental in helping Orient climb the League One table after joining in late August, but their short-term contracts are close to coming to an end.

However, Slade said: "I think we are getting quite close, so I'm hoping we can conclude those shortly."

Slade has not ruled out adding to his squad but admitted there will not be much movement in or out before next week's transfer deadline.

"We'll have to wait and see," he added. "You never know with the January window, things can happen right at the last minute."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
