Top stop­per’s an­swer­ing Trot­ters SOS

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - TREVOR BAX­TER

MANCH­ESTER United keeper Ben Amos has landed a sur­prise chance to spark his ca­reer with Cham­pi­onship neigh­bours Bolton.

The 24-year-old Macclesfield-born goalie is now fourth choice at Old Traf­ford, be­hind David De Gea, Vic­tor Valdes and An­ders Lin­der­gaard.

But he was on the bench on Satur­day when Bolton and Wolves played out a draw at the Macron Sta­dium.

Amos hasn’t played a se­nior com­pet­i­tive game since ap­pear­ing for Carlisle United on New Year’s Day 2014.

How­ever, Adam Bog­dan’s train­ing ground an­kle lig­a­ment in­jury this week forced Trot­ters’ boss, Neil Len­non, to send an SOS to the Reds.

“We’ve brought Ben in for a month and will have a look at him,” con­firmed Len­non.

“It may be that that gets ex­tended depend­ing on Adam’s in­jury. We seem to have run over a cou­ple of black cats.

“We are not get­ting breaks as far as in­juries are con­cerned.”

Bog­dan has been Bolton’s pri­mary keeper in their two FA Cup out­ings this sea­son and his man-of-the-match dis­play earned Wan­der­ers a fourth-round re­play against Liver­pool this evening (Wed­nes­day).

How­ever, Len­non said that Andy Lon­er­gan will take the place of the Hungarian in­ter­na­tional with Amos, who has Cham­pi­ons League ex­pe­ri­ence with United, among the subs.
