Bolton Wanderers manager Ian Evatt has confirmed that loanee Paris Maghoma has picked up a thigh injury which will keep him out until October.

The midfielder joined this summer on a season-long loan from Brentford, and has so far played six times in League One, picking up one assist. Maghoma’s injury adds to Bolton’s ever-growing injury list.

Luckily for Bolton fans, Maghoma doesn’t seem to be injured for too long,

“Paris has a thigh injury, classed as a 2C, so it is one of those things which is significant enough to keep him out for two or three weeks,” Evatt told The Bolton News.

“The more we push him or go with it, the more it has the potential of being a really nasty tear and we don’t want that.

“He pulled out of training this week and we are just going to have to try and get him back as soon as we can.”

Evatt also demanded more from the substitutes after their second half collapse to Reading on Saturday afternoon.

“We absolutely need more from them.Those substitutions should not have affected anything we were doing.

“Randell (Williams) just looked very tired, fatigued, it was hot out there and a lot of hard work, particularly for the wing-backs, doing the distances we required them to do.

“We were 1-0 up and bringing on a defender to see the game through, obviously that is logical.

“Bringing Victor (Adeboyejo) off – we had asked the forwards to press from the front because we didn’t want Reading to gain any momentum and I felt we looked like we needed a bit of experience and legs up there, and Cameron (Jerome) offers us that.

“We do need more from the entire squad – but there is nobody more disappointed than us, everyone, me included, that we didn’t get a result.

“I think we can all admit that you cannot get away with creating as many chances as we did and still not winning a game. It just shouldn’t happen.”
