Leyton Orient are hopeful that AFC Bournemouth loanee Harry Cornick will return to full fitness before his loan spell ends in January.
The 21 year old joined the League Two side in August and made 13 appearances for the club across the league, EFL Cup and Football League trophy.
He scored his first goal for the club in a 2-2 draw away at Carlisle in September.
But since October, Cornick hasn’t featured after suffering discomfort in his groin.
Last week he underwent surgery and Orient are hopeful he will return over the next month.
Leyton Orient Head Physiotherapist Peter Webb told leytonorient.com…
‘Following the Barnet game Harry presented with some pain, and went back to Bournemouth for a check-up with their doctor who after that period wanted him to complete his rehabilitation there.
‘During his rehab they noticed Harry wasn`t progressing as expected, so he went to see a specialist two weeks ago. From that appointment it was deemed the injury was a little bit more serious than first thought meaning that he required further intervention to which he underwent an operation on Tuesday last week.
‘Harry is currently still back at Bournemouth undergoing his rehab programme again and hopefully he will be able to return to the club before the end of his loan period in January.’
‘his season opening 5 starts (+1 from the bench) and a caution have been added to with 5 consecutive starts (1 in the EFL Trophy) and his first goal of the season plus rave reviews. After coming off the bench for 45mins, the following game he came off after 50mins with an injury that’s led to no involvement since. – Join the conversation here.
