Friendly abandoned after injury

Gillingham’s friendly at Leyton Orient was abandoned on Saturday after Gills’ summer signing Lee Martin suffered a serious ankle injury.

A pre-season game between Leyton Orient and Gillingham had to be abandoned after a serious injury to Gills midfielder Lee Martin.

The 29-year-old, who joined the League One side from Millwall earlier this summer, suffered a suspected dislocated or broken left ankle.

He was hurt after landing awkwardly 13 minutes before full-time, and the game was called off soon afterwards.

"Our thoughts are with Lee," said Gillingham manager Justin Edinburgh.

"We hope that he makes a quick recovery," Edinburgh added of the former Manchester United youngster, who had come on at half-time in place of Bradley Dack.

First-half goals from Jordan Bowery and Jay Simpson had put League Two side Orient 2-0 up when the game was abandoned.

Martin is the third Gillingham player to be injured during pre-season, with defender Bradley Garmston and midfielder Aaron Morris both out of action with knee injurie
