Confirmation of goalkeeper's injury sustained during a recent training session
Adam Bogdan is set for a spell on the sidelines after straining ankle ligaments in training.
The Hungarian international twisted awkwardly during Thursday’s session at the club’s Euxton training base.
And speaking in his pre-match press conference the manager confirmed Bogdan would miss a number of weeks with the injury.
“It seems as though his foot caught in the turf,” the manager said. “It appears that his body has gone one way and his ankle has stayed, but these things happen.
“We’re waiting for the proper diagnosis on it, but again it’s another big player that we’ve got missing. We’re having a run of bad luck with injuries lately.”
