Wanderers are hoping midfielder Darren Pratley will be fit to play against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

The midfielder, pictured, was forced off just 24 minutes into the 2-0 weekend win against Watford with a shoulder injury and replaced by Neil Danns.

Manager Dougie Freedman admitted post-match it was a precautionary change after his shoulder socket had popped out and been put back into place.

The 28-year-old, who has 23 appearances under his belt this season, was sent to hospital after the home victory for a scan to ensure everything was fine.

The Bolton News understands medical assessment has confirmed the injury is not a serious one.

Danns should get the nod.

Glad to see Im not alone in my opinion of El Prat, LPP. Surely after the transformation in the team,set up,performance when the tit went off and Danns came on is enough even for ( Im a stubborn,blind ,clueless little jock ) to understand,the team works better in any formation when the tit is not on the field ???

Only one manager in the world would bring back Pratley. Unfortunately he's our manager.

Pratley's done well recently and at times has been the best of a bad bunch. Danns worked very hard v Watford - I think the two of them have realised they're probably competing for one spot when Dougie has 2 up front (finally some competition for places) so I don't mind which plays. No point in rushing Pratley back if there's a ready made replacement in Danns.

Lusty I think Pratley is way too lightweight and his touch is awful. Danns and Mavies worked together superbly, in fact they looked as if they had played together all season. Pratley is nowhere near that sort of understanding with Mavies and in my opinion isn't even close to matching the quality of Danns. I truly believe that bringing Pratley back to start this Saturday and putting Danns back on the bench would be a monumental mistake.

Danns is definitely better going forward and if we're playing 2 strikers with no wingers they'll need that support. Can't bank on Mavies having a great game every week.
Pratley has a good workrate and helps out defensively more than Danns and has has some great games this season but is erratic. 
Think Dougie prefers to star Pratley purely because he's worried about our defence ATM (rightly so) and especially as playing no wide men leaves our makeshift FBs exposed. If we get Moxey or another proper FB in I think Dougie would start Danns every week.

I've just read that Pratley is still injured and Matt Mills could be out for some weeks.

Our defensive options are really stretched now. The return of the Nightmare  affraid
