Bolton striker Kevin Davies could be sidelined for up to six weeks after tearing a hamstring.

He suffered the setback on Saturday during the 3-1 defeat by Newcastle and was replaced by Heidar Helguson in the second half.

Bolton manager Sammy Lee said: "It is obviously a massive blow as he is such an influential player but it gives someone else the opportunity to stake a claim."
