Bolton Wanderers wing-back to miss Burton Albion clash as Liverpool loanee update given

Conor Bradley is back available and 'raring to go' for Bolton Wanderers but Lloyd Isgrove is likely to miss the clash against Burton Albion with a sore hamstring.

Wanderers are back at the University of Bolton Stadium tomorrow evening to take on the Brewers. They go into the encounter on the back of a 3-2 comeback victory over Accrington Stanley.

Liverpool loanee Bradley missed that game owing to suspension. He is now back available and expected to start tomorrow evening's game.

He is likely to replace Isgrove, who has recently returned from 10 months out injured. Ian Evatt spoke of the conversations he has had with the winger, and they have opted between them to go for caution.

He said: “Obviously, Conor Bradley is back available. He is raring to go. Lloyd is feeling a bit stiff and sore in his hamstring after Saturday. We will probably give him a couple of days to recover.

"Two first team fixtures in a week for the first time in 10 months is obviously challenging, so we will look after him. Other than that, everyone is available.

“Izzy has done phenomenally well to do the two games he did last week, I know he didn’t play 90 in both games, but the intensity level compared to the B team games he’s been playing in is night and day.

“He’s really honest, he knows his body really well and I’ve got to give him great credit because the conversations he’s having with myself and the physio department is ‘I am feeling a little bit tight and stiff’ and then we can pull the reins on him.

“The great thing about him is he’s being honest enough to say that, because if he carried on with this feeling, then potentially he could end up reinjuring himself and that’s the last thing we want. At the moment it is caution from both sides, which is pleasing.”
