Chambers out but Mpoku is on his way back

Mixed news on the injury front for Orient boss Slade

ORIENT midfielder Adam Chambers will be out of action for the next month after undergoing surgery on his calves.

Orient boss Russell Slade confirmed: “He will be out for action for approximately a month, but we hope to have him back for the first game in December.”

Chambers has been suffering for a while and Slade said: “It’s a problem he has had for the last 18 months, but the operation has been done by a top specialist and we hope it will cure the problem once and for all.

“The operation will release the pressure in his calves, which was causing a lot of cramps and soreness.”

While Chambers faces four weeks on the sidelines, the good news for Slade is that on-loan midfielder Paul Jose Mpoku, who has been out of action for a couple of weeks with a hamstring problem, has returned to training and should be available for Saturday’s trip to Bristol Rovers.
