Manager Phil Parkinson has issued a plea for new players in the January transfer window.
The call for more players comes as the list of injuries at Bolton grows.
Speaking to the Bolton News this week, Parkinson said: “Without doubt. We have to be in a position to add to the squad.
“You look at teams around us adding players left, right and centre, and we have to be able to do that.”
Of course the Bolton manager would like to add to his squad. But with a registration embargo placed on the club, the question is, will Bolton be able to add anyone to the team in January?
Bolton are no strangers to working under transfer embargoes. Parkinson himself led Bolton to promotion from League One under an embargo.
However, with a squad that is blatantly not strong enough to stay above the relegation waterline and financial trouble escalating in the background, it’s unlikely that Parkinson will be able to add anyone of note to his squad this month.
Added to Bolton’s misfortune is the news that Norwich loanee Yanic Wildschut has picked up a serious injury. The Dutch winger reportedly requires surgery and will be out for three months (The Bolton News).
Furthermore, one of few bright sparks in Bolton’s season, Joe Williams, is also out until February with an injury.
With an ever-growing injury list, financial misgivings behind the scenes and a transfer embargo, it’s not an easy time for Bolton supporters, but then when is it ever easy?
