ORIENT U18s captain Sam Ling has been ruled out for six weeks and requires surgery on a facial injury.

The youngster sustained a fractured eye socket and two fractures of the cheek bone in the final moments of the FA Youth Cup defeat against Colchester United last week. 

Ling has been in the first team squad on several occasions both this season and last and was most recently on the bench against Preston North End.
