Bogdan injury doubt for Blackburn clash

Bryn Lennon

In the dying embers of the weekend's match at Barnsley, Adam Bogdan went to ground following a save. The commentary crew slated the Hungarian goalkeeper for diving and then, when the physio came on to treat him, for diving.

It was clear that Bogdan was not play acting, especially after the physio did his job and Bogdan was back on his feet yet the harsh commentary continued. Finally, on the ensuing goal kick Bogdan was unable to take and Craig Dawson was forced to do the job.

According to the Bolton News, Bogdan was carrying a groin injury and aggravated it in the weekend's win. The news means that the goalkeeper is now a doubt for tomorrow's Blackburn clash and Andy Lonergan could take his place.

Lonergan has yet to play a league game for Bolton Wanderers (he hasn't played a single league game since April of last year) but has impressed in a number of his four cup outings this season. His performances against Sunderland both home and away led to many fans calling for him to replace Bogdan as the starting keeper.

Of course, Bogdan had been in very good form as of late and has been crucial in Bolton's six match unbeaten run with point-saving performances against Nottingham Forest and Derby County.
