Liam Trotter out for up to ten weeks

Manager confirms midfielder ruled out with hamstring injury

Liam Trotter is set to be out of action for up to ten weeks with a hamstring injury.

The midfielder was substituted late on in the first half of Bolton’s midweek Capital One Cup victory at Crewe Alexandra.

And following a scan the manager revealed the extent of the injury when speaking at his pre-Leeds United press conference.

“It’s a blow for us,” Freedman said. “Liam was really beginning to find his stride and fitness.

“He’s shown what a good player he is, though we do have a few other players who are able to play in that position.”
