Sam Ricketts Achilles Injury

Premier League - Serious injury for Ricketts - Yahoo! Eurosport
Bolton boss Owen Coyle's joy at seeing his side secure a place in the last 16 of the FA Cup was tempered by the loss of another defender to injury after Sam Ricketts damaged his Achilles at Wigan.

Ricketts went to ground in the second half at the DW Stadium while tracking Latics substitute Victor Moses and had to be carried off on a stretcher.

"He has damaged his Achilles and it doesn't look great at this time," said Coyle...

"The medical team think it could be quite severe and we hope that is not the scenario, but the way it is looking right now, I think it is going to be a lengthy period of time.

For fantasy managers, Marcos Alonso is the likely option as Steinsson is injured as well. his replacement is likely to be Gretar Steinsson, who is listed in Y!'s game at a reasonable 5.67. Bolton's upcoming Premier League fixtures include @Newcastle, home to Aston Villa, @Manchester United before easing up with @Birmingham City, home to West Ham United, @Fulham.
