Bolton boss Owen Coyle has confirmed Tyrone Mears is facing more time on the sidelines after the defender suffered a setback in his recovery from a broken leg.
Mears joined Wanderers from Burnley last summer but sustained the injury in training just days later.
Coyle said: "Tyrone Mears has had a setback in his recovery from his fractured leg. He has had to have a screw replaced and he will be out for a number of weeks on the back of that."
