Darren Pratley: Bolton captain set to miss rest of season after surgery
Bolton Wanderers captain Darren Pratley is likely to miss the rest of the season after another operation.
The midfielder, 31, has been out of action since fracturing a bone in his leg and suffering ankle ligament damage in the League One fixture against Sheffield United on 6 August, 2016.
Pratley returned to training but had to undergo another operation on Tuesday.
"It's a real shame for both Darren and ourselves," manager Phil Parkinson told the club website.
"We'll move on though and wish him all the best in his recovery."
