Mark Davies to start against Wigan?

Great news for Wanderers fans as Mark Davies inches closer to a first-team return

The (daft) booking incurred by Darren Pratley, combined with the mediocre form of both Jay Spearing and Medo Kamara has left Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman with a tough call to make ahead of this weekend's MASSIVE game against local minnows Dave Whelan FC.

Therefore it has come as a great surprise to all to read that Mark Davies, creative force and sunbed enthusiast is in line for a return to the starting XI this weekend, his first since suffering that terrible knee injury in February 2013, just days after signing an improved four year contract with the club.

Bolton manager Freedman said:

He tells me he is in the best condition of his whole career. He is really fit, he is trim and he is in better shape than he was when he did his knee"

It would be a great boost to the club and supporters to see Davies return to the side for the game.

A little edge from the game has been taken away by the decision to remove former Bolton manager Owen Coyle from the helm at the modestly-named Dave Whelan Stadium. Chairman, stadium announcer, tannoy operator, Press officer and purveyor of shit tracksuits Dave Whelan was on Sky TV earlier today blabbering on about how he 'once broke his leg'.

Wanderers face Dave Whelan FC this Sunday at the Dave Whelan Stadium in a 3pm kick-off.
