Season-ending blow for Ricketts

Bolton Wanderers will be without Sam Ricketts for the rest of the season after he ruptured his Achilles.

The injury happened as Bolton beat Wigan in an FA Cup fourth round replay on Wednesday.

Full back Ricketts, who will also miss Wales’ European Championship qualifier against England in March, had surgery on Friday and faces up to six months on the sidelines.

“He has been outstanding for us and our immediate thoughts go to him as we wish for a speedy recovery,” said Bolton manager Owen Coyle.

“It was very innocuous as he sustained the injury by tracking their winger Victor Moses. He has put his foot down and stumbled, so it is very unfortunate.”

“Sam will get all the help from the club that he requires, but we will now have to get on with everything.”

Coyle faces something of an injury crisis at the back, with Zat Night out for six weeks with a knee injury.

Bolton take on Fulham in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday.
