Youngster ruled out until end of April with fractured scaphoid
Leyton Orient goalkeeper Charlie Grainger is set to undergo surgery on a fractured scaphoid in his left hand tomorrow (Friday).
The 19-year-old has been struggling with the injury for some weeks and will now be out for the foreseeable future.
He has made four appearances for the O’s this season – all under previous head coach Ian Hendon.
Grainger’s last featured for the east Londoners in the goalless draw with Scunthorpe United in the FA Cup on December 5.
