Bolton Wanderers winger Lloyd Isgrove ruled out with hamstring tear

Wanderers winger Lloyd Isgrove is ready for a spell after suffering a grade three hamstring tear.

Isgrove was forced out against Doncaster in the first half, becoming the latest name on the Whites’ extensive injury list.

Wanderers boss Ian Evett admitted it was another setback ahead of Saturday’s clash with Cheltenham, in which Dapo Afolain was also ruled out of suspension.

“Lloyd’s got a grade three hamstring (tear) which means either surgery or at least 12 weeks out, so not good news,” said bolt on Owner. “The reasons for the Dapo (Afolyan) suspension are also clearly missing.

“He’s frustrated and we’re all doomed. As a manager, I always analyze things that have happened and things that are going, and the Stockport home game is a real disappointment because we have to Should have won the game.

“Then we avoid replays where Josh (Sheehan) picks up an ACL injury, Baka (Amadou Bakayoko) picks up a hamstring injury.

“We have to play 120 minutes at a real high intensity and then we have to travel to Wycombe with the same group, the same squad.

“From behind him, Izzy is tired and we have to roll him out again and he gets injured in the first half. This is the reason but it is our own fault, so we have to take our medicine.

“As I said, lessons learned and (we) have to stick together as a group, as a club and as a fan. Challenging times can really bring out the best. So let’s hope it’s our group.” Do the same with him.”

Evett also revealed that Alex Baptiste could return to the team against Robbins this weekend.

The veteran defender suffered a medial ligament injury against Wycombe last weekend

“I think he will be fully fit for next week, but there is a good chance he will be available for this weekend,” Ivet said.

“He might have to play through some pain to make that happen but Alex is one of those guys who puts his hand up and steps up to the plate and wants to crack. So that might be a little positive.”

Bolton is also hoping for positive news about MJ Williams, who will see a specialist tomorrow after dislocating his shoulder at Wycombe.
