Dorian Dervite Ruled Out for Four-Six Weeks

And there was much rejoicing

Bolton Wanderers' French centre back, Dorian Dervite, has been ruled out of action for four-six weeks with knee ligament damage.

The former Charlton Athletic man had to leave the pitch early on Tuesday night against Birmingham City after picking up the injury and further scans have revealed he'll miss at least a month worth of games.

Never has news of an injury been met with such a high degree of jubilation and celebration from the player's own fan base before, which says a lot about the level of Dervite's performances of late.

However bad Dervite may be, however, after injuries to Dervite and David Wheater and the departure of Prince, Bolton find themselves with only two fit first team centre backs, Rob Holding and Derik Osede, who've only got 25 first team appearances between them.

Should injury befall to either of those two Neil Lennon will then have to select one of the youth team centre backs, with Alex Finney and Quade Taylor being highest in the pecking order.

Or he'll just play big Emile Heskey at the back, who knows?
