Mark Davies: Bolton midfielder facing 10 months out

Davies sustained the injury when twisting awkwardly during Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Peterborough in the Championship.

The setback comes just days after the 25-year-old had agreed a new contract with the Reebok Stadium club until 2017.

The former Wolves man recently returned from a shoulder injury that had kept him out for seven weeks.

Bolton manager Dougie Freedman said: "It's a blow for Mark, but he'll come back stronger.

"I believe Chris Eagles can now step up and deliver in that role."
