Mark Davies: Is 'making good progress' in his recovery from injury

The playmaker has been out of action since rupturing his cruciate ligament against Peterborough in March but is making good progress and could make a comeback before the end of the year.

It will be welcome news for manager Dougie Freedman, who has struggled to fill the 'number 10' role in Wanderers' side this season after an injury to Andre Moritz left the squad threadbare in that position.

But with Davies' progress and Moritz returning to fitness, the club are hoping it brings about an improvement that will see them lift themselves off the bottom of the Championship table.

Bolton's sports rehabilitator Dave Dean said: "Mark is back on the field doing his final stage work now.

"It will take a few weeks for him to get his fitness back but he's doing really well at the moment.

"He is ahead of schedule but it is obviously not something you can rush. We don't want him coming back and then getting re-injured. We need to make sure."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
