Bolton Wanderers' right-back debacle continues ahead of today's clash with Huddersfield Town, with news that Lawrie Wilson has been farmed out on loan to League One side Peterborough United.

Wilson will be best remembered for having an absolute nightmare in the away clash at Huddersfield, never to be seen again. That was followed by Lennon trying all manner of replacements at right-back, including Derik Osede, Francesco Pisano, Josh Vela and Rob Holding - whose form of late has seen Wilson become totally surplus to requirement.

Wilson joins Peterborough on a short-term loan until January 30th and is available for the Posh's clash with Sheffield United today, but the move casts fresh doubt on his future at Bolton. It also  raises fresh questions over why Neil Lennon bothered signing two 'specialist right-backs' in the summer only to then play centre-backs in their position.

Peterborough have a reputation for having a somewhat shaky defence despite being the top scorers in League One, and will no doubt look to benefit from Wilson's natural attacking threat down the right flank.
