Officially official: Extended injury layoff for Mark Davies, midfielder out for ten months

Michael Steele

Mark Davies took a seemingly innocuous challenge midway through the first half with Bolton Wanderers leading 1-0. With his studs getting caught awkwardly in the ground, it led to the midfielder twisting his knee. After trying to run it off, he immediately asked for a substitute. After Mark Davies was forced to leave Bolton's game against Peterborough tuesday night in just the 24th minute, Bolton Wanderers feared the worst. After all, what is a campaign for the Trotters without at least one major injury?

Davies was taken to hospital earlier on Wednesday and the scans have thankfully revealed that there is no ligament damage to his knee. As a result of the scans, Mark Davies will be sidelined for the next ten months. It will come as a major blow to Bolton Wanderers who had really enjoyed Davies playing in a more advanced role, just behind the strikers.

The Peterborough match really did show how important of an asset Mark Davies is to the Trotters. After he went off, Bolton clearly lost their way and were essentially on the back foot for much of the game's remaining minutes.

Hopefully it's not too long before Mark Davies is scampering around the midfield again.
