Sean Davis is continuing his fight to be match fit by the end of the season. You might not remember him, because after all, it's been nearly 30 months since he last played a Premier League match. Meanwhile, youngster Mark Connolly, captain of the Reserve team, will join League Two's Macclesfield for a month.
Bristol, like Bolton, are relegation threatened except they are in the Championship. They sit two spots and six points above the drop zone to League One. Sean hopefully will help them survive while becoming match fit for the end of the season. Davis has made a couple of Bolton Wanderers Reserves appearances and actually looked decent but Owen Coyle is hoping to ease him back into action. Enter Bristol City to take Sean on loan.
Macclesfield looked decent when they played Bolton three times this season over a Carling Cup and two FA Cup matches. Their league position doesn't suggest that as they sit in 20th place, just three points clear. Connolly told the official website:
"I got a phone call from my agent after Tuesday night's reserve game saying that there was interest from Macclesfield," Connolly explained. "I then spoke with the gaffer and he said it would be good for me to get some game time there.
"I've seen this season when they've played our first team that they are a very good side despite their league position. I'm looking forward to going there and it's going to be a new challenge for me."
Hopefully these two get some valuable experience and for the love of everything good in the world don't get injured.
