Bolton Wanderers has confirmed its player injury deadline

WANDERERS will be without Nathan Baxter for at least three weeks, Ian Evatt has confirmed.

The goalie tore a ligament during a match against Barnsley two weeks ago, which is why he is currently sporting a cast on his wrist.

It was originally intended for Baxter to continue with the injury, but following the postponed match against Cambridge United, there was a change of heart, and he will now be out of commission until at least March.

Following Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Charlton Athletic, the Bolton manager stated: “We are giving that ligament time to recover because Nathan is currently in a pot. In two or three weeks, we will have additional information.

The Wanderers are hoping that top scorer Dion Charles will be fit for the next game against Wigan Athletic and that Ricardo Santos will be back in action for the trip to Blackpool on Saturday.

However, Evatt has allayed concerns regarding the first goal scorer, Victor Adeboyejo, who was substituted for Jon Dadi Bodvarsson during the halftime break against Charlton and scored Bolton’s third goal of the game.

Vic suffered a small amount of vision impairment after being poked in the eye. After we made the adjustment, Jon had an incredible second half.

Evatt was happy with the caliber of his team’s three goals against Charlton, but he also said that his day had been marred by referee Ross Joyce’s choice to let play continue in the lead-up to the visitors’ third goal rather than allowing Josh Dacres-Cogley to undergo treatment for a head injury.

“Quality was our aim,” he declared. Particularly the third one, which was quite skillfully executed. My irritation stemmed from the fact that despite scoring three excellent goals, we were unable to win the match.

“It is truly criminal to lose after scoring three goals at home. We allowed ourselves to give up two careless goals, but we need to stop the third one.

“I always ask myself, and I just asked myself, would I have felt wronged if the game had been stopped? I don’t think so, because you just never know what will happen and how bad the injury is.

“It really disappoints me.”

Evatt commended Bolton’s support, especially in the second half after Charlton regained the lead following Daniel Kanu’s contentious goal.

He remarked, “The second half in particular was everything I could have asked for.” Additionally.

“We are a hard team to stop when the fans are like that and, to be honest, the team has a responsibility as well,” the player said.
