Adam Bogdan injury a setback for Bolton *UPDATE*

Some of the supporters of Bolton Wanderers have seen their wishes come true, as goalkeeper Adam Bogdan has been forcibly removed from the first team.

According to his official Facebook page, Adam Bogdan, Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper, has suffered a knee ligament tear, leaving him out for 3-6 weeks.

Scans show that the injury doesn't need surgery and if rest and rehab go well for the Hungarian, who injured himself in training on Monday, we should see him back on the pitch around mid-November. Bogdan injured his left medial ligament after catching his studs awkwardly in the turf at Euxton.

Andy Lonergan is expected to stand in during Bogdan's absence, seeing as he's played twice so far in the Capital One Cup.

Rumors are that Lonergan and Dougie Freedman have had a rough start, not seeing eye to eye most times. The biggest concern with Lonergan is his inability to do anything with the air, and while our defense has become better with the inclusion of Matt Mills, there's still a lot of room for mistakes.

Then there's Jay Lynch, tiny and playing for the reserves, but blessed with an agility that allows him to make the blocks we need. But he's never played a minute in his life-which, at 20, is understandable.

It looks like Dougie Freedman has his hands full making the decision for who's in goal, but what would you do?

Sound in and let us know!

UPDATE: Jay Lynch has confirmed he's injured and possibly out for 5 weeks.
