It’s been a long road to recovery for Orient goalkeeper Jamie Jones.

The long-serving stopper made his return to the Orient first team after more than three months out with a stress fracture to the back.

Despite the Bradford defeat, the 25-year-old Scouser declared “it’s great to be back.”

He said: “I love playing for this club but unfortunately we didn’t get the right result today.

“I felt great out there. The back feels fine. I had to pick one out of the net so it felt a bit sore when I did that but it’s good to be back in the team.

“The reception was brilliant and I appreciate that.”

Jones’ return between the sticks came earlier than he might have expected.

It’s not the first long-term injury the goalkeeper has suffered in his career.

He’s found it “frustrating” and has found it impossible to pinpoint when it happened.

Jones said: “This one was a freak injury, there’s nothing I could have done about it.

“One week it was sore, then I got a scan on it and found out it was a stress fracture. There was no incident when it happened, it just came through time.”
