The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

LEY­TON Ori­ent boss Ian Hen­don has backed Paul McCal­lum to bounce back af­ter be­ing hit by a six­month in­jury lay-off.

The 22-year-old striker only signed in the sum­mer from West Ham and has scored three goals so far.

But he suf­fered a cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in­jury last Satur­day against Northamp­ton.

“We are all dev­as­tated for Paul,” said Hen­don. “He has had a great start to the sea­son for us and was show­ing ev­ery­one what he was ca­pa­ble of at this level.

“But know­ing the type of char­ac­ter he is I am con­fi­dent he can come back fit­ter and stronger.”
