O's forward ruled out for lengthy spell
Leyton Orient striker Paul McCallum is set to spend at least six months on the sidelines after scans confirmed cruciate ligament damage to his right knee.
The 22-year-old, who had scored three goals for the O’s in the opening few weeks of the season, picked up the injury having come on as a second half substitute in last Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Northampton Town.
“We are all devastated for Paul,” Hendon told leytonorient.com. “He has had a great start to the season for us and was showing everyone what he was capable of at this level.
“Paul will be a loss for us, but knowing the type of character he is I am confident he can come back fitter and stronger from this experience.”
