SILVA WOE STRIKES TROT­TERS

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

BOLTON winger Welling­ton Silva will be out of ac­tion for up to ten weeks af­ter suf­fer­ing a ham­string tear.

The Brazil­ian sus­tained the in­jury in the first half of the Trot­ters’ 1-0 loss to Birm­ing­ham City on Tues­day.

He burst be­tween two Blues de­fend­ers and fell in the box, only to be booked for sim­u­la­tion and limp off.

The 22-year-old has spent the last four years out on loan, with Bolton his sixth spell away from the par­ent club Arse­nal fol­low­ing stints at five Span­ish clubs.

“The in­jury is a blow,” said Bolton boss Neil Len­non. “We’re ex­pect­ing him to be out for about ten weeks.”
