Stephen Kelly endured a painful blow this week when he sustained a broken nose in training, but insists he will still be available for Monday's trip to Bolton.

The right-back suffered the fracture in a training ground collision with Jamie O'Hara on Tuesday but yesterday denied the suggestion that is has cost him his looks.

"I wouldn't go as far as saying that!" laughed the Republic of Ireland under-21 international. "I just got a bang on the nose on Tuesday.

"It is not that bad, I should be able to train with the team on Saturday and have just had to do no-contact stuff for a couple of days. I went into the back of his head and it was a bit silly, but what can you do?

"Afterwards it was a bit sore and I had a little headache in the evening, but a couple of pain killers sorted that out.

"It is not going to keep me out of any games or affect me physically in terms of running around. It was a little bit wonky anyway as it has happened to me a couple of times before and there is not much further damage."
