Dislocated shoulder means season's over for David Ngog

Charlie Crowhurst

After scoring his eighth goal of the season against Leicester City last night, David Ngog continued to run the rule over the Foxes for the majority of the match. That is, until the final few minutes when a heavy and awkward fall would see the big striker stretchered off the pitch.

It was in the dying embers of the match as Bolton pushed for another equalizer following Darren Pratley's goal to make it level and Jeffrey Schlupp's volley to put Leicester ahead. Ngog fell on his shoulder, much like Mark Davies did at Huddersfield Town, and suffered what is now confirmed as a dislocated shoulder. The striker will miss at least three months and thus the rest of the season.

Back injury plagued Ngog for the season's opening months and forced him to miss the majority of the preseason as well as the club's first few games. He now joins Tyrone Mears, Mark Davies, Keith Andrews, and Jay Spearing on the bench. Spearing broke his toe against Bristol City and will be out for three games.

Craig Davies is expected to slot right into Ngog's spot with Tom Eaves providing support off the bench.

Get well soon, Dave.
