Football - Beckford set for Bolton bow

Bolton will kick off the Sky Bet Championship season at Burnley with three long-term injuries to contend with.

PA Sport Report

Stuart Holden's injury woes continued when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee while on international duty with the United States.

The midfielder therefore joined young full-back Joe Riley on sidelines - the defender having suffered a similar injury - and Mark Davies, who the Trotters are hopeful will be back before Christmas from a knee problem.

Striker Jermaine Beckford could make his Bolton debut but will not do so in tandem with Marvin Sordell after he secured a season-long loan to Charlton on Thursday.
