Fears over Darren Pratley and Karl Henry injuries at Bolton Wanderers

DARREN Pratley will have a scan this week to assess whether he faces an extended spell on the sidelines.
The Wanderers skipper limped out during the first half of last night's 1-0 win over Hull City at the Macron Stadium after damaging his ankle.
It is feared the midfielder could have suffered a similar problem to the one which kept him out for the majority of last season.
The injury will be given time to settle before the Whites will know exactly how long the experienced ball-winner will be out for.

Fellow midfielder Karl Henry was also forced off early on against the Tigers with a hamstring strain and is likely to miss next weekend's FA Cup clash with Huddersfield Town.
“Karl looks like a tight hamstring, so it isn’t quite as serious," explained Whites boss Phil Parkinson. "But Darren has hurt his ankle – the same one he did last season – so we’re keeping fingers crossed he will be okay when he gets it looked at."
Wanderers made four changes to the team which beat Sheffield United at the weekend, with Filipe Morais, David Wheater, Adam Le Fondre and Josh Cullen all being moved to the bench.
Parkinson also swapped formation back to 4-2-3-1 and the manager believes the lack of certainty over a starting place helped to fire up his players against Hull.

"The win at Sheffield United was an important one as we freshened the team up, so the lads who came into the team today like Sammy and Mark Little alongside Vela and Buckley knew that they had to raise their games after missing out at the weekend," he said.

"The lads need a lift physically and you could see that the ones who didn’t figure at Bramall Lane had that bit of freshness in their legs again."

Can survive without Pratley, more bothered about Henry.
