Confirmed: Mark Davies suffers shoulder injury

The confirmation has come through the Bolton News. Mark Davies will have to sit on the sidelines for some time in what will be a major blow to Bolton Wandererers. The Bolton News just published this brief bit of information:

Wanderers have been dealt a blow after in-form midfielder Mark Davies was ruled out for up to three months with a shoulder injury.

Davies suffered the injury in the 2-2 draw at Huddersfield and scans have revealed a more serious problem than first feared.

Their full story on the injury is out tomorrow.

Davies had become an integral part of Bolton's lineup under Dougie Freedman and was actually doing very well in the 4-5-1 formation. He is set to miss about 12 weeks thanks to the injury.

Jacob Butterfield, on loan from Norwich City, will more likely than not slot straight into Davies' place in the side. The worry is really what happens after Butterfield as he is only with Bolton for another month. Do Bolton shift to a 4-4-2 with Jay Spearing and Keith Andrews center? Does Darren Pratley get a chance to do what Darren Pratley does?
