Cuthbert sustained the injury during Saturday's goalless draw at Preston and was duly forced off just after half-time.

Having made just two appearances at the start of the season, Cuthbert did not feature again until the start of December but has firmly established himself as a regular ever since, appearing in 23 of the club's last 27 games.

Manager Russell Slade told the O's official website: "It's disappointing for us and disappointing for Scott to pick up the injury at this time, particularly as he was starting to recapture his best form."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
