Joe Mason is set to miss between six and eight weeks of action, after scans revealed a tear in his hamstring.

Mason, who is on a season-long loan at Bolton from Cardiff City, became the first Wanderers player to net a competitive first-team hat-trick in 12 years in September, but has seen his career stall since then - featuring just twice since Neil Lennon's appointment as manager.

With Craig Davies missing Saturday's goalless draw against Ipswich Town with a hamstring problem of his own, Mason was a surprise absentee from the matchday squad.

Conor Wilkinson began as a lone forward against the Tractor Boys, while Eidur Gudjohnsen was introduced as a second-half substitute. After seeing Max Clayton stretchered off with a suspected knee ligament injury, Lennon confirmed after the game that the reason why Mason was left out of the squad because of a torn hamstring.
