Bolton defender Marc Tierney has been taken to hospital for scans on a leg injury he suffered in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Yeovil Town.

Tierney had to be replaced after 64 minutes at the Reebok Stadium, after coming out of a 50/50 challenge with Glovers defender Shane Duffy in considerable pain. The former Norwich City defender received treatment on the sidelines, but was in clear discomfort as he was taken down the tunnel and off to hospital.

Initial reports suggest the player will undergo a scan on his tibia and fibula, with Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman describing the situation as 'difficult' in his post-match interview.

The injury is almost certain to keep Tierney out of Tuesday's game at Blackpool and he would have to be considered a doubt for next weekend's trip to Birmingham City. The full extent of the problem, however, is not yet clear.
