We mentioned in our Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Bolton Wanderers match report that Darren Pratley suffered an injury at White Hart Lane following a tackle he attempted. We now know more a little more about Pratley's injury thanks to some post-match comments made by Owen Coyle. Pratley's injury is a large gash running down the side of his thigh.
According to the Bolton News:
Wanderers are hoping the problem, which resulted in a large gash down the inside of his thigh, will result in him being sidelined for between 10 days and two weeks, but Whites boss Owen Coyle admitted: "The worst case scenario is that it could be four to six weeks."
