WANDERERS are hoping midfielder Darren Pratley will be fit to play against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

The midfielder, pictured, was forced off just 24 minutes into the 2-0 weekend win against Watford with a shoulder injury and replaced by Neil Danns.

Manager Dougie Freedman admitted post-match it was a precautionary change after his shoulder socket had popped out and been put back into place.

The 28-year-old, who has 23 appearances under his belt this season, was sent to hospital after the home victory for a scan to ensure everything was fine.

The Bolton News understands medical assessment has confirmed the injury is not a serious one.
