Bridcutt missing as Bolton host Rochdale

Bolton captain Liam Bridcutt will miss the visit of Rochdale with a broken collarbone that could rule him out until Christmas.

Winger Will Buckley is also set for a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a fractured kneecap in the Trophy game at Rochdale last week.

That could open up a chance for 17-year-old midfielder Sonny Graham to join the squad, while Joe Dodoo is pushing for a start after building up his fitness with an outing for the development side on Monday.

Young defender Harry Brockbank has suffered a setback with a muscle injury having only returned to training last week.

Paul McShane is set to keep his place at the heart of Rochdale’s defence after impressing on his debut last weekend.

The 33-year-old, who has signed a short-term contract until January, combined well with Eoghan O’Connell, who rushed himself back from injury, in the centre of defence.

Defenders Rhys Norrington-Davies and Luke Matheson return from international duty with Wales Under-21s and England Under-18s respectively.

Midfielder Stephen Dooley remains doubtful with an ankle injury sustained earlier this month.
