JON Dadi Bodvarsson’s return to the Wanderers fold could be a gamechanger, says Ian Evatt.

The Iceland international has been out of action for three weeks with a hamstring injury and has been able to start just two games in all competitions this season.

Bodvarsson finished last term with four goals in seven games and it has been a frustration for Evatt that he has not been able to call on his most experienced front man in what has been a tough start in League One.

He returned to full training at the start of the week and could now play some part in the squad to face Peterborough United this weekend after staying at home for the midweek win in Milton Keynes.

Evatt – who also had to do without Dion Charles for a few weeks in August – is looking forward to getting the two players fully fit once again.

“It will be huge to get Jon back out there,” he said, speaking before last night’s game at MK Dons. “Towards the end of last season he was one of the league most outstanding centre forwards and both him and Dion had a disrupted start to pre-season and the start of the regular season.

“Having them both fit and firing again will be big for us.

“We want them all fit, firing and available. As much as they have not scored in the league yet they have done lots of things right too. Their buy-in to the out-of-possession stuff is really important to the way the team functions.

“In possession, it is about having that killer instinct, calmness and coolness to take the opportunity when it comes to you. I think we have that in abundance with that group and hopefully we will see it soon.”

Wanderers’ B Team take on Wrexham at Lostock this afternoon (2pm kick-off) looking to notch up their second win in the Central League this season.

Evatt will check to see the condition of Lloyd Isgrove to see whether he will play in the game but is likely to keep Josh Sheehan, Eoin Toal and Owen Beck back until next Tuesday’s Papa Johns Trophy group game against Tranmere Rovers.

Asked about his selection plans, the Bolton boss added: “Will Izzy play? Maybe. But probably not as he’s still struggling with his plantar fascia, even though it’s not serious, it takes a little while to settle.

“I wouldn’t think any of the first team would be involved on Wednesday. I think what we’ll do is give them a good hard solid training session on Wednesday on return from MK and then the plan is to play them 90 minutes on Tuesday against Tranmere.”
