Bolton Wanderers injury update on Manchester City loanee ahead of Cheltenham Town

Bolton Wanderers have a near fit squad to choose from for this weekend's trip to take on Cheltenham Town.

Wanderers make the journey down to Gloucestershire aiming to make it back to back wins in League One. They will be seeking to build on the 3-1 victory over Charlton Athletic last weekend.

The Whites are currently eighth in the table and just a point from the play-offs. Should Bolton win and results elsewhere go their way on Saturday, they could be back in the top six by 5pm.

Prior to the encounter, Wanderers boss Ian Evatt has confirmed that Manchster City loanee James Trafford is fine to play after a slight ankle knock picked up at the end of last weekend's 3-1 win over Charlton Athletic. Lloyd Isgrove remains out with a slight heel and foot problem.

“James Trafford is fine after that little ankle knock, everyone else is fine," Evatt said.

“Izzy is still struggling with that heel and plantar fascia. But other than that, Josh Sheehan and Eoin Toal are increasing their fitness levels all of the time. Owen Beck is physically looking a bit better this week.

"He is still probably not quite where we want him but he is getting there fast, which is good. Some really good signs from him today. The squad is in a good place, they have trained really well the last couple of days.”

Striker Jon Dadi Bodvarsson has not yet returned to training after a minor hamstring problem.
