Orient defender Cuthbert faces spell on the sidelines
Boss Slade admits he will be out for weeks
Orient defender Scott Cuthbert is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering a recurrence of a hamstring injury.
Cuthbert, who missed the end of last season with a hamstring problem, limped out of the action in the opening game against Tranmere and Orient boss Russell Slade admitted things are not looking good: “He is going to be out for a good few weeks,” he admitted.
The O’s have yet to pick up a point and following Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat against Stevenage Slade said: “Nobody wanted to get off to a better start than me.
“We worked so hard over the close season to try and get the pre-season right and it leaves a sick feeling inside to be honest that we did not get something from Tuesday’s game.
