Leyton Orient head coach Justin Edinburgh is selfishly pleased that striker Macauley Bonne has missed out on a Zimbabwe call-up during the International Break.

The 22-year-old, who has been called up in the nation’s last two selections, making two full caps has not been selected this time round meaning he will not miss any Orient fixtures in the next week.

Bonne has proved vital for Edinburgh’s side so far this season as he is currently the club’s top goal scorer with four already this campaign.

“I’m pleased, really pleased, surprised, I’m not going to comment on that as I’m just interested in Leyton Orient and the best scenario for us is that he didn’t get picked,” the 48-year-old said.

“From a selfish point of view I’m well pleased.”

However, midfielder Dale Gorman has been called up to represent Northern Ireland under-21s in their matches against Spain and Luxemburg this week.

The former Gillingham boss is pleased for the youngster and believes it will work well for both parties with Gorman needing pitch-time after only recently returning from injury.

“We lose Dale for two games now and it’s probably a blessing for us really, you normally lose players when you don’t want to, but Dale is still coming back from injury and still finding full fitness.

“But he’ll go away and play two full games for Northern Ireland which probably at the minute he wouldn’t have quite broken into the team here so it’s worked in our favour at this point in time.”
